In Context at Iziko National Gallery

In Context was originally conceived by the Goodman Gallery as a series of site-specific exhibitions and interventions in and around Johannesburg over the period of the FIFA World Cup in June 2010. The exhibition travels to Cape Town and will be presented at Iziko South African National Gallery as a single and cohesive exhibition. Curated by Liza Essers, the exhibition will present work by a diverse group of international and South African artists who explore the dynamics and tensions of place, in reference to the African continent and its varied and complex iterations, and to South Africa in particular. The works – wide-ranging, frequently provocative – engage with a number of pressing questions about space, context, and geography.

This installment of In Context features work by Ghada Amer, El Anatsui, Joël Andrianomearisoa, Kader Attia, Candice Breitz, Loris Cecchini, Mounir Fatmi, Jenny Holzer, Robin Rhode, Yinka Shonibare, Mikhael Subotzky & Patrick Waterhouse, Hank Willis Thomas and Kara Walker.

The exhibition runs from 27 November 2010–13 March 2011. For more information visit or call +27 (0)21 467 4673.
