Rise and Fall of Apartheid travels to Museum Africa

Following a highly successful tour that included the International Center of Photography (New York), Haus der Kunst (Munich), and PAC (Milan), the exhibition The Rise and Fall of Apartheid is coming to Museum Africa in Johannesburg from 13 February to 29 June 2014. The New York Times said of the exhibition: “…the material brought together is rich, its arrangements provocative and its ideas morally probing. In short, it’s really something to see, and I urge you to.” Rise and Fall went on to win the 2012 Lucie Award for Best Photography Exhibition, and the Gold Deutscher Fotobuchpreis for 2014 for the exhibition catalogue. The exhibition features work by Jodi Bieber, David Goldblatt, William Kentridge, Thabiso Sekgala and Sue Williamson.

Joel Andrianomearisoa, mounir fatmi, Kendell Geers & David Goldblatt at The Menil Collection

Bringing together the work of over twenty artists – including Joel Andrianomearisoa, mounir fatmi, Kendell Geers and David Goldblatt – The Progress of Love at The Menil Collection in Houston considered how technology, economic systems, and other forces have shaped ideas about love and their expression. In doing so, the exhibition seeks to ask what part of love is universal? What part is timeless and what is a cultural construct? The exhibition ran from 2 December 2012 to 17 March 2013.

Rise and Fall of Apartheid at ICP

Works by Jodi Bieber, David Goldblatt, William Kentridge, Thabiso Sekgala and Sue Williamson featured on Rise and Fall of Apartheid: Photography and the Bureaucracy of Everyday Life at the International Centre of Photography in New York. This photographic exhibition examines the legacy of the apartheid system and how it penetrated even the most mundane aspects of social existence in South Africa, from housing, public amenities, transportation, to education, tourism, religion, and businesses. Complex, vivid, evocative, and dramatic, it includes nearly 500 photographs, films, books, magazines, newspapers, and assorted archival documents and covers more than 60 years of powerful photographic and visual production that form part of the historical record of South Africa. Several photographic strategies, from documentary to reportage, social documentary to the photo essay, were each adopted to examine the effects and after-effects of apartheid’s political, social, economic, and cultural legacy. Curated by Okwui Enwezor with Rory Bester, the exhibition proposes a complex understanding of photography and the aesthetic power of the documentary form and honors the exceptional achievement of South African photographers.

The exhibition ran from 14 September 2012–6 January 2013.
