South African art 1848 - now
6 December 2005 - 14 January 2006
Michael Stevenson's annual exhibition of South African art is an unrivalled event on the collector's calendar. As has been the case for the past ten years, a selection of choice works by South African 20th-century masters will be exhibited, including Irma Stern, Gregoire Boonzaier, Gerard Sekoto, Albert Adams, Ezrom Legae, Sydney Kumalo, Ephraim Ngatane, Walter Battiss, Stanley Pinker and Peter Clarke.
There will also be a selection of major new works made for the exhibition by the gallery's contemporary artists. These include photographs by Guy Tillim, Pieter Hugo, David Goldblatt and Zanele Muholi; paintings by Mustafa Maluka, Deborah Poynton and Tracy Payne; ceramics by Hylton Nel; prints by Churchill Madikida, a performance by Nicholas Hlobo and an installation by Wim Botha.
The exhibition takes place at the end of an extremely successful year for the gallery's artists, with the latest highlight being the announcement that Churchill Madikida is the Standard Bank Young Artist for 2006. Guy Tillim was awarded the 2005 Leica Oskar Barnack Prize, Wim Botha exhibited as the Standard Bank Young Artist for 2005, and Berni Searle was selected for the 51st Venice Biennale, among other prestigious group exhibitions. Tillim, Botha and David Goldblatt are all included on the international touring exhibition Africa Remix, which has been seen in Düsseldorf, London and Paris and travels next to the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo, and Pieter Hugo and Mustafa Maluka were also selected for group shows abroad.
Michael Stevenson's annual exhibition provides an insightful view of trends in South African art, and as always is accompanied by a well-researched catalogue.
