Gallery News for David Goldblatt

Various artists at the New Church Museum, Cape Town

Works by Willem Boshoff, Kudzanai Chiurai, David Goldblatt and Sue Williamson are included on the exhibition 50/50, curated by South African art historian Rory Bester at the New Church Museum in Cape Town. Bester has selected works from the museum’s permanent collection and augmented these with loans that reflect on the patterns of repetition and recognition in turning over and overturning of art histories. The exhibition is a collation and juxtaposition of historical and contemporary works, all viewed through a responsive, documentary lens. As these repetitions and recognitions accumulate over time they come to bear on signifiers such as monuments, monumentality and iconoclasm, secrets and lies, the rise and fall of ideas, culture, cultivation, movement and mobility.

David Goldblatt at Standard Bank Gallery

David Goldblatt: The Pursuit of Values is on show at Standard Bank Gallery, Johannesburg, from 20 October to 5 December. The catalogue produced for the show notes that the exhibition is “essentially about the human spirit” and draws on a number of bodies of work, covering a period of some 65 years. There is a particular focus on South Africa, with works from the series The Structure of Things, Then (1998) and from his ongoing series on the Structures of Democracy.

David Goldblatt in Bloemfontein and Stellenbosch

The University of the Free State, in partnership with the Goodman Gallery, will present the exhibition Structures of Dominion and Democracy 13 July to the 7 August. The exhibition is dedicated to the series Structures, one of the major bodies of works by Goldblatt. For over three decades Goldblatt has traveled South Africa photographing sites and structures weighted with historical narrative: monuments, private, religious and secular, that reveal something about the people who built them. The exhibition forms part of the main programme of the Vrystaat Arts Festival. Goldblatt’s exhibition In the Time of Aids runs at Stellenbosch University from 6 July. According to the artist’s statement the awareness-raising exhibition happens at a time when, “although less voracious in its spread and through drugs less terrible the suffering it brings, HIV/Aids is still very much with us.” Runs until 30 November 2015.

Various artists on TWENTY: Art in the Time of Democracy

The exhibition TWENTY: Art in the Time of Democracy features works by 115 artists and is presented by UJ Arts & Culture at the UJ Art Gallery from 1 July to 5 August 2015. Curated by Gordon Froud, senior lecturer at the University of Johannesburg (FADA), it incorporates a broad range of works by established and emerging South African artists addressing their experiences of the first twenty years of democracy in this country. Artists include William Kentridge, David Goldblatt, Diane Victor, David Koloane, Kagiso Pat Mautloa, Vusi Beauchamp and Clive van den Berg. Froud originally curated the exhibition for the Appalachian State University Turchin Centre in North Carolina, in 2014.
