Goodman at Cape Town Art Fair 2015

For the Cape Town Art Fair 2015 the Goodman Gallery presents works by dynamic and young artists that deal with concepts and themes specific to their time and place. Themes like dislocation after apartheid, violence, insider and outsider statuses and multiple identities. In this time of global conflicts we find artists negotiating the contemporary moment which includes navigating post national identities, the complexities of Diaspora and, in our context, Afropessimism. Artists shown on the Goodman Gallery booth include Carla Busuttil, Kudzanai Chiurai, Nolan Oswald Dennis, Jabulani Dhlamini, Hasan and Husain Essop, Gabrielle Goliath, Gerald Machona, Haroon Gunn-Salie, Mikhael Subotzky, and JessicaWebster.

Carla Busuttil in London

The paintings of Carla Busuttil will be exhibited in the group show Figuratively Speaking at Heike Moras Art in London from 15 January to 11 February 2015. The exhibition is made up of artworks by a group of largely London-based artists who use the human body as their inspiration and playing field. Employing a more gestural or expressionistic style, the artists depict the human form using diverse approaches that question embodiment in our current post-Internet age. Busuttil will be one of the artists in conversation with Sacha Craddock on 29 January 2015.
