FEATURED : Johannesburg Art Gallery

A LABOUR OF LOVE: Bongiwe Dhlomo-Mautloa in conversation with with Hans Blum, Collector (Weltkulturen Museum, Frankfurt) | talk 
Works by Peter Clarke, Lionel Davis, David Koloane, Sam Nhlengethwa and others. New works by Sam Nhlengethwa, Gabi Ngcobo and the Wits School of Arts students Chad Cordeiro, Michelle Monareng, Nathaniel Sheppard and Matshelane Xhakaza.
The Goethe-Institut is supporting Hans Blum’s participation as part of the A LABOUR OF LOVE public programme. Having lived in South Africa from the early 1960s until the late 1970s, Blum became interested in contemporary art and was involved in the anti-Apartheid movement, bringing work to Germany to create awareness about Apartheid in South Africa. In 1986 he was commissioned by the Weltkulturen Museum in Frankfurt to buy art works on behalf of the institution. He acquired 600 works by black South African artists, which today form a crucial part of the museum's contemporary art collection. Bongiwe Dhlomo-Mautloa is a South Africa artist, art administrator and activist. More information about her can be found here. 
A LABOUR OF LOVE came 28 years after the first exhibition of this collection was held in Frankfurt. Read more about the JAG leg of the exhibition here.

Sacred and Profane
 | exhibition
The works on show explore a range of processes that draw on ideas and interpretations of the Sacred and the Profane. It stems from the need of every era to reinvent “spirituality” for itself. Art has the potential to lead us to a place of vision that unites the material and ethereal worlds (Hart 2005:3). Human experience has the possibility to be ordered by the sacred and to create fundamental meaning in the world.

James Delaney will talk about how the regeneration of the Joburg inner city has impacted on  his artworks. He will be showing works from several series of lithographs and silkscreens, tying together threads of his thoughts and insights into history, architecture, public art and mining, and how all these shape the urban landscape which is currently being repurposed and reinvented.
The location of Piece studio is a good vantage point for the discussion – spires of buildings in his Commissioner Street series can be seen from the windows, and his silkscreens of animals walking the city streets were produced in the same building.

Repast by Ann-Marie Tully | finissage

Repast [ri-past]:
Noun
A quantity of food taken or provided for one occasion of eating; the time during which a meal is eaten - mealtime; archaic and obsolete term indicating the taking of food.
Verb
To eat or feast (often followed by on or upon).
The title repast refers in this showing to a body of work that both encompasses mealtime crockery, and ceramic much associated with the decorative and culinary arts. Repast constitutes a meal of visual-thinking-in-the-world.

Picturing Whiteness, 1966-1996 
Investigating the Archive of Scope Magazine | Roelof Van Wyk

A three month art residency in this public facing street front shop window where the main thematics of an investigation into the visual constructs of pictorial whiteness will jostle for space and attention by experimenting visually in assemblage form, with the concepts of Contempt and Disgust in the space between the public and the private, towards the practice component of the fulfilment of a PhD in History of Art. 

"Shape of Things to Come"- 50 years later, the Title of a Blackened Scope Magazine Cover, September 1966, rings prophetic, mourning the Architect of Apartheid, Hendrik Frensch Verwoerd's death.

Movement and it's limitation within an environment by Quinten Edward Williams | exhibition

Movement and its limitation within an environment is a visual-spatial presentation which responds to the vibrancy of partaking in an assemblage, and to the ambivalence of living in a borderland.

The sketching process employed in the making of the artworks occurs through an interface between painting, sculpting and printing. It entails a movement between the painterly and the linear, and of opacities and translucencies.

It reimagines aspects of how the black body has been portrayed in Africa, speaks to our bodies as unfamiliar spaces even though it is the only ‘home’ we truly know from birth and thus consequently explores ideas of home and the self.”

Battle lines, the death of actually by Craig A Smith | exhibition

Battle lines; a line drawn in the sand, the setting out of boundaries and the brush marks made on the surface of the canvas.
The studio is the battlefield, where the push and pull of the human condition is encountered and reflected on. The death of Actually: How much of our experience and emotions are being conditioned by the altered ego on a daily basis? Feeding on the rise of narcissistic thought and opinion, the fuel of Fakebook and Instaglam and Twatter. Giving rise to populist narcissistic leaders in South Africa, America, Turkey, Russia the list goes on…
Maybe we should turn to self and the eternal battle with the super ego, its own becoming. Wrestle empathy away from doubt and anxiety of modern living.
Who will leave the ring?

Four Dilemmas is an encounter with the archival through the Market Photo Workshop’s picture holdings. Four Dilemmas began as an exhibition project and inquiry into women-led photography produced through the Photo Workshop’s courses, mentorships and public projects from 2004 – 2017, and developed into an interrogation of the archival as a system that unfolds across economics, ownership, memory, capitalism, community and representation.

Pluralities of Being  by Todd Gray | exhibition

Pluralities of Being disrupts and questions the role photography plays in the transmission of history and cultural identity. Gray was Michael Jackson’s personal photographer in the 1980’s and remixes his images of iconographic pop culture with photographs made during his time of residency at NIROX in Johannesburg.
The work is collaged directly onto the gallery walls, framed photographs overlap and form photographic sculptural reliefs that further question where the image, space and content begin and end. Colliding with a new body of drawings made during his time on residency, Gray reframes and reveals an intimate and collective post-colonial, transatlantic memory.

I was her and she was me and those we might become by Kitso Lynn Lelliott  | exhibition 

In the exhibition, the artist interrogates the philosophical underpinnings and ontological construct of race that emerged during the European Imperial era, which in turn have resulted in the production of an ”Othering” using hegemonic colonial languages. Her research further elaborates into the perpetuation of the idea of “racially marked beings” with the associated violent omissions, erasure and deletion of knowledges carried in diverse languages.

On Repeat by Georgina Gratrix | exhibition

SMAC Gallery is pleased to present On Repeat, a solo show of new paintings by Georgina Gratrix, and her first in Johannesburg. To play a song on repeat is to play it over and over again, to wear out the needle on the record, to wear the song thin. In Gratrix’s case, and in the instance of her pattern-like canvases, the opposite is true – the more she repeats gestures and symbols, the thicker they become. With each repeat application of her brush to the canvas, the surface blooms with luscious daubs of oil paint, allowing the repetition of colour, form, shape and texture to proliferate each painting.

Fugitive by Moshekwa Langa | exhibition

STEVENSON
 takes pride in announcing Fugitive, a solo exhibition by Moshekwa Langa. Conceived as a homecoming, this will be the artist’s first showing in our Johannesburg gallery, and his first exhibition of new work in this city since 2009.
It is often remarked that Langa's work since the mid-1990s has interrogated land and public and personal politics through the mapping of territory and cultural environments. This exhibition explores these concepts in terms that are personal but not self-directed. Langa immerses himself in the process but allows it to evolve organically, engaging his work in a reflexive conversation.
