The Iziko Conference of Seminars was held at the National Gallery on 1 October 2010.
Essentially the discussions were organised by Riason Naidoo who intended to stimulate
discussion around the controversy, both good and seemingly bad around his first show. A
few things that evolved from the discussion was the right for Critics to have the freedom
and space to be able to give good criticism to a show, as well as the need to give great
attention to the looming potential Media Tribunal and the Information Bill that would have
a disastrous effect to those artists who wished to practice their profession effectively,
without potential censorship and government intervention looming. All photos: Jenny
