William Kentridge in Beijing and Puebla

Notes Toward a Model Opera at the Ullens Centre for Contemporary Art, Beijing is a comprehensive retrospective spanning 25 years of Kentridge’s output. It includes key pieces: from the early Soho Eckstein films and related drawings, the exhibition moves on to encompass major multimedia installations, recent ink paintings, and finally the titular project, a new work related to the particular aesthetics of modernity in socialist China. As Kentridge’s first solo exhibition in China, the exhibition offers a vantage point on his expansive practice uniquely suited to an audience in East Asia. From 27 June to 30 August 2015. The retrospective Fortuna runs at Museo Ampara, Puebla, Mexico from 4 July.

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.

Goodman Gallery at Art Basel 2015

At this year’s Art Basel, Goodman Gallery’s status as one of the oldest and most established commercial art galleries in Africa means it is ideally positioned to present significant contemporary works by established artists, and distinctive works by new visionaries. These include South African artists William Kentridge, Kendell Geers, Mikhael Subotzky, Adam Broomberg & Oliver Chanarin, as well as Nigerian artist ruby onyinyechi amanze and Moroccan artist mounir fatmi. We also include work of major international artists who speak to the African condition: Liza Lou, Hank Willis Thomas, and Alfredo Jaar. Art Basel 2015 provides Goodman Gallery with an opportunity to define aspects of the African moment, and to engage in the discourse about artistic practice on and connected to the continent.
