Dear friends,

We plan to send you a note from our desks every two weeks – offering you thoughts about The Showroom's online archive, about past and present projects – in the hope that this offers you an interlude, hopefully something you experience as beautiful and thought-provoking, that redirects your mind away from some of the new routines we are learning to live with.

What follows is not necessarily your usual newsletter, because these are not typical times. For the first time, we want not to invoke the 'voice’ of the organisation, but rather offer you our personal reflections, writing to you fortnightly about our current projects as well as others in our archive, as if they were a state of mind, or perhaps a note to self – if one is to follow Simnikiwe Bulunghu’s invitation...

Warmly,
E

Elvira Dyangani Ose
Director, The Showroom

EVERY DAY IS
EVERY DAY
AND
EVERY DAY IS
FOR EVERY
BODY
AND EVERYBODY
HAS AN
EVERY DAY.
