portia"The website ArtThrob appeared for the first time in August 1997, the moment of the 2nd Johannesburg Biennale, with the mission of publishing a monthly feature on contemporary South African/African art. The aim was, and still is, to being news of artists, galleries, events and exhibitions to the attention of not only of South Africans but to the wider world ... Since that first issue, ArtThrob has been in continuous production, switching from a monthly html feature to its current form of being continually updated as news and reviews come in" from the foreword by Sue Williamson.
