'Contemporary Art/South Africa'

Sue Williamson, Gavin Jantjies, Robin Rhode, Santu Mofokeng and William Kentridge at Yale University Art Gallery

'Contemporary Art/South Africa' features more than 30 artworks produced in South Africa or by South Africans from the late 1960s to the present, a period of immense political and social change. The artists in this exhibition—including Gavin Jantjes, William Kentridge, Santu Mofokeng, Zanele Muholi, Robin Rhode, and Sue Williamson—address key aspects of the experiences of South Africans, offering multiple perspectives on their lives, their society, and their world. Contemporary Art/South Africa features a small but growing body of South African artworks acquired in recent years by the Yale University Art Gallery, alongside loans from public and private collections. Organized by Yale students, the exhibition highlights the vibrancy of South African culture and society, and it invites viewers to question whether it is possible to understand a country through the art it has produced, and to understand contemporary art through the country in which it was made.

Exhibition organized by Yale University students under the mentorship of Kate Ezra, the Nolen Curator of Education and Academic Affairs. Made possible by the Jane and Gerald Katcher Fund for Education; the John F. Wieland, Jr., B.A. 1988, Fund for Student Exhibitions; and the Nolen-Bradley Family Fund for Education.

09 May - 14 September
