Goodman Gallery will have a new street-level presence in Cape Town when its video room opens on Saturday 29 October downstairs from the gallery on Sir Lowry Road, Woodstock’s main artery. The space will add a dynamic element to the gallery’s programming with ongoing curated films on show, book launches, performances and print exhibitions. The space launches at the same time that Goodman Gallery Cape Town opens In Context: Where We Are, a group exhibition of African artists that complements Africans In America at the gallery’s Johannesburg location.
Hours are: Tuesday–Friday 09h30–17h30, Saturday 10h00–13h00 (closed Monday).
From 7 July to 15 December Williamson’s work appears on the next leg of the exhibition Lucy’s Iris at the Musée départemental d’art contemporain de Rochechouart in France. Twenty artists show Africa from various perspectives, looking at the role of women on the continent, addressing issues such as the environment, memory, colonial history or identity.
In 2016, Goodman Gallery celebrates its 50th anniversary – five decades of shaping contemporary art and working with artists who challenge unequal power structures and affect social change. Through global dialogue and exchange, Goodman Gallery has placed common histories at its core and has been instrumental in shifting perspectives through contemporary art. In celebration of half a century of advancing artistic achievement, we will host major exhibitions between our Johannesburg and Cape Town galleries in early June, featuring significant work, installations, interventions, performances, video and talks programmes, as well as partnerships with major public institutions.
