The group exhibition You don’t say, is based around a third-year Fine Arts project completed at the University of Pretoria under the guidance and teachings of Johan Thom in collaboration with the South African conceptual artist Willem Boshoff. The works of other year groups, ranging from second-year to Master’s level, also form part of the exhibition as a way to broaden the conversation across different levels of students and their relative perspectives. The exhibition included more than twenty selected individual young artists' works shown alongside three related works of art by Boshoff: Ash (2018), Elm (2021), and Oak (2021).
