'Figures & Fictions: Contemporary South African Photography'

Various Artists at Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A)

Curated by Tamar Garb, 'Figures & Fictions' features works by some of the most exciting and inventive photographers living and working in South Africa today.  The exhibition presents the vibrant and sophisticated photographic culture that has emerged in post-apartheid South Africa, responding to the country's powerful rethinking of issues of identity across race, gender, class and politics. Photographers on the exhibition include: Jodi Bieber, Kudzanai Chiurai, Hasan and Husain Essop, David Goldblatt, Pieter Hugo, Terry Kurgan, Sabelo Mlangeni, Zanele Muholi, Santu Mofokeng, Zwelethu Mthethwa, Guy Tillim, Berni Searle, Mikhael Subotzky, Jo Ractliffe, Roelof Petrus van Wyk, Nontsikelelo Veleko and Graeme Williams.
