Untitled 8.99 | A Group Exhibition
Presenting a range of engaging artworks, Untitled 8.99 brings together a selection of contemporary artistic talent. For some of the exhibiting artists, Untitled 8.99 marks their debut at 99 Loop, while for others, the exhibition is a return to a familiar space. Encompassing the entirety of the gallery, Untitled 8.99 embodies a coming-together of different mediums, styles, and messages. As such, viewers are bound to find much to delight in and draw connections between.

Aspeling, Gretchen van der Byl, Ilené Bothma, Marolize Southwood, Mashudu Nevhutalu, Mia Darling, Oda Tungodden, Paul Wallington, Ravélle Pillay, Richard Ketley, Rory Emmett, Selwyn Steyn, Sizwe Sama Sibisi, Stephen Allwright, Thebe Phetogo, Ulriche Jantjes, and Xanthe Sommers.

Fanie Buys | Miss
Showing in our Loop Editions space is Fanie Buys' latest series depicting various titleholders of the Miss South Africa crown. From Suzette van der Merwe to Shudufhadzo Musida, Buys has painted every winner starting from the decade he was born (1990). Buys' portraits seek not to make a value statement but rather, in their effusive alacrity, seek to hold a moment through the illusory nature of figurative painting: disjointed brushstrokes fabulous and fetid. We are delighted to be showcasing a selection of these paintings, which are in equal parts enamoring, nostalgic, and glamorous.
Fanie Buys is a dynamic young artist based in Cape Town who graduated from the Michaelis School of Fine Art in 2016. To date, he has had two solo exhibitions at 99 Loop, 2018's This Man, and 2019's Happy Birthday Jesus!. Buys' practice predominantly focuses on icons of pop culture and the act of commemorating them through paint.
