Goodman Gallery at Art Basel Miami Beach

Goodman Gallery has the distinction of being one of the most established galleries representing the African continent at Art Basel Miami Beach 2015, which runs from 3 to 6 December. The selection traverses compelling re-articulations of space, place and power. Representations of race and conflict reveal our artists grappling with distinctly 21st Century dynamics. The human mark on the changing landscape, symbols of power and powerlessness, and the cost of conflict to lives make up a collection dealing with troubling contemporary dramas and consequential outlooks. Artists include Carla Busuttil, Nolan Oswald Dennis, Kendell Geers, David Goldblatt, Haroon Gunn-Salie, Alfredo Jaar, William Kentridge, Liza Lou, Gerhard Marx, Misheck Masamvu, Walter Oltmann, Gerald Machona, Hank Willis Thomas, Mikhael Subotzky & Patrick Waterhouse and Minnette Vári.
