Our client, Fulcrum partnered with the Bag Factory Artists’ Studios and the Candice Berman Fine Art Gallery to launch the Fulcrum Suzanne Shaw Creative Award, in December 2016.

This award was created to promote art and artists in South Africa and to commemorate the life of the late Suzanne Shaw. Su, as they called her at Fulcrum, was a valued member and a big fan of the arts. Suzanne unfortunately passed just before Fulcrum was due to host an exhibition she had curated.

In 2016, Fulcrum invited aspiring curators who wished to compete for this prestigious award to enter the competition and candidates were shortlisted to compete for an opportunity to curate an exhibition at the Candice Berman Gallery. And amongst these candidates, Layla Leiman won the award.

At CN&CO we are passionate about the arts and believe strongly in initiatives that give opportunities to the up-and-coming generation to fulfil their passion in art.

Tune in to Kaya FM (frequency 95.9), Business and Arts feature on the “Kaya FM Bizz” business slot at 17H20 to hear more about the Fulcrum Suzanne Shaw Creative award and the winning curator, with Fulcrum’s Head of Brand, Clodagh Da Paixao.
