Hosted by Max Melvill, ‘Eyes Wide Shut’ looks into 5 art fair interventions exploring the role & agency of the audience in the art world.

Max Melvill is a Cape Town based creative whose work blurs the boundaries between art and architecture. He co-founded the award-winning spatial practice ‘The MAAK’ in 2016 that now runs alongside the artist-led project space ‘The Ramp’ which he co-founded in 2021. In 2022 he participated in the ALT section of the Investec Cape Town Art Fair with the presentation of an experimental online gallery titled ‘The PLOT’.

Art School Africa, a non-profit organisation established in 2022, is dedicated to empowering individuals across the African continent to kickstart or advance their careers in the art industry. In partnership with the Harvard University Center for African Studies, the organisation conducts comprehensive research, spanning countries such as South Africa, Kenya, and Ghana, to gain profound insights into the distinctive challenges faced by art practitioners as they embark on their professional journeys. This research forms the foundation for the development of educational content designed to effectively support artists, curators, writers, gallerists, collectors, and more.

Embracing a hybrid model, Art School Africa offers a multitude of free online talks and panel discussions, as well as in-person workshops led by accomplished professionals. These workshops are recorded and subsequently uploaded to their growing online platform, which acts as an important archive of shared knowledge pertaining to professional artistic practice in Africa, and ensures accessibility to learners across borders
