David Goldblatt and Haroon Gunn-Salie on A4 Arts Foundation’s inaugural exhibition in Cape Town

The A4 Arts Foundation’s inaugural exhibition, You & I, in Cape Town (13 September – 30 November) includes work by both David Goldblatt and Haroon Gunn-Salie. As a non-profit arts organisation dedicated to promoting and encouraging innovation within the South African arts, the exhibition uses the Buitenkant Street gallery space as a platform in which the idea of collaboration and collectivity can be explored. Curated by Ziphozenkosi Dayile and Kemang Wa Lehulere, You & I examines the multivocality of collectivity by investigating and reconsidering the social conditions, dynamics and histories of such ideas.

Various artists at the College of Wooster Art Museum

Five Goodman artists – Kudzanai Chiurai, Hasan & Husain Essop, Gabrielle Goliath, Haroon Gunn-Salie and Gerald Machona – are included on the College of Wooster Art Museum’s group exhibition After the Thrill is Gone: Fashion, Politics, and Culture in Contemporary South African Art, in Ohio (12 September – 12 November). Curated by Dr. Andrew Hennlich, the exhibition features 14 artists who read the political climate of post-apartheid South Africa through fashion’s embrace of the ‘new’. The artists use fashion to shape narratives of representation, identity, memory, xenophobia, violence in the domestic sphere, and allegories of nationalism. Both individually and collectively, these artists locate fashion as a political language and reinterpret the historical terrain of South Africa after the thrill of apartheid’s end is gone

The exhibition is part of a series of pop-up exhibitions around South Africa, organised by photographer Marc Shoul and ROADHOUSE, that bring the best of local photography to a wide, non gallery-going audience. The exhibition presents a carefully curated selection of images, all photographed at night, which reflect, and reflect on, the after-hours as a time of fun, dread, dreams, prayers and nightmares.
