Introducing Editions for ArtThrob

A distinctive partnership between South Africa's pre-eminent contemporary art website www.artthrob.co.za and Johannesburg's Goodman Gallery, Editions for ArtThrob is a new initiative aimed at making the work of South Africa's best contemporary artists widely accessible to new audiences. The programme will not only provide an opportunity for collectors to build up a unique art collection, it will also provide ArtThrob with the necessary lifeline it needs to cover the modest administrative expenses necessary to maintain the site.


Artist Profile 001: Zwelethu Mthethwa

The photographer Zwelethu Mthethwa has garnered a lot of attention for his considered portraits of the living conditions and experiences of the migrants who end up in our country's townships and informal settlements. As ArtThrob's Paul Edmunds has observed, "both the cultural disorientation they experience and their quotidian existence is rendered in the saturated hues and rich textures of his large-format photographs."

Zwelethu began exhibiting in the mid 1980s and has partaken in many one-person and group shows. These include 'The Short Century', which travelled Europe and the US recently, and the last two Dakar Biennales. Born in Durban in 1960, Zwelethu has a Diploma and an Advanced Diploma in Fine Art from Michaelis. Formerly a lecturer in Photography and Drawing at that venerable institution, he resigned in 1999 due to his increasingly high international profile. ArtThrob is honoured to launch Editions for Artthrob with a print from this dynamic talent.
