Fiction as Fiction (or, A Ninth Johannesburg Biennale) is the third exhibition in Stevenson’s year-long Trade Routes Project, in which the gallery pays tribute to the second – and last – Johannesburg Biennale in 1997.  How would (local) art history have been altered if the biennale had not closed down?  The exhibition brings together the work of ten international artists who employ and interrogate fiction in their work, to give a glimpse of what a fictional 9th Johannesburg Biennale might have been about or looked like.
