'(Re)Constructions: Contemporary Art from South Africa'

Mary Sibande, Tracey Rose, Various Artists, Lawrence Lemaoana and Kagiso Pat Mautloa at Museu de Arte Contemporanea de Niteroi (MAC)

Curated by Daniella Géo, this exhibition brings together 13 artists from South Africa, from emerging young artists to those internationally established. All of their works have a close relationship to the notion of reconstruction, whether conceptually or aesthetically. The range of diverse works reflects the multiplicity of artistic strategies in post-apartheid South African society.The exhibition programme includes a round table, educational activities, guided tours for public schools, and a bilingual catalogue.

Artists: Roger Ballen, Dineo Seshee Bopape, David Goldblatt, Diana Hyslop, William Kentridge, Lawrence Lemaona, Kagiso Pat Mautloa, Santu Mofokeng, Sam Nhlengethwa, Thenjiwe Nkosi, Tracey Rose, Lerato Shadi and Mary Sibande
