David Koloane and Rose Shakinovsky on abstraction show at Iziko South African National Gallery

David Koloane and Rose Shakinovsky feature on the Iziko South African National Gallery’s Assessing Abstraction group exhibition in Cape Town (opens 13 August). The exhibition, curated by Hayden Proud, showcases artworks and seldom-seen examples from Iziko’s collections and the national gallery’s acquisitions of non-figurative painting and sculpture, from the very first purchases of non-figurative work made some 60 years ago until the present.

David Koloane and Sam Nhlengethwa at JAG

Works by David Koloane and Sam Nhlengethwa form part of the Weltkulturen Museum’s collection and traveling exhibition, A Labour of Love, on show at the Johannesburg Art Gallery (opens 13 August). Co-curated by Gabi Ncgobo and Dr. Yvette Mutumba, with assistance from fine art students at the University of the Witwatersrand, the exhibition explores artworks from this collection whilst showcasing contemporary artistic productions from South African artists who examined these historic pieces from various angles. The majority of these historic works was created in the mid-1980s when outbreaks of violence between anti-apartheid organisations and the nationalist apartheid government led to a national state of emergency.
