When Rain Clouds Gather: Black South African Women Artists, 1940 – 2000

9 February 2022 – 9 January 2023

When Rain Clouds Gather: Black South African Women Artists, 1940 – 2000 is a reflection upon the influential and often unacknowledged contributions of Black women to South African art history in the twentieth century. Expressed through a Black African feminist lens and curated by Portia Malatjie and Nontobeko Ntombela, the exhibition is a cross-generational communion of 40 Black women artists, spanning from early Modernism to the contemporary period. When Rain Clouds Gather invites us to think critically about Black women’s archives and the tools used to engage with them, while also taking pleasure in their aesthetic ingenuity.

 

 

Kapwani Kiwanga: Shady

9 February 2022 – 9 January 2023

Kapwani Kiwanga is a Franco-Canadian artist based in Paris, whose work traces the pervasive impact of powerful asymmetries. Kapwani Kiwanga: Shady is an exciting exhibition on a large scale. The artworks name and semi-transparency also plays upon the politics of visibility and invisibility. Though the work was created in response to the Canadian context, the themes conveyed by the artwork are easily transferred to the South African context, given their shared history of colonialism and industrial agriculture.
