An exhibition of portraits by emerging and established South African artists reflecting on the changing face of the genre within a South African context.
Showcasing examples by selected South African masters alongside more recent initiatives by artists exploring the subject from a contemporary viewpoint, the exhibition aims to map something of the altering attitude towards the notion of the portrait and to provide the viewer with a sense of this shift in perspective.
The exhibition will include, amongst others works by George Pemba, Irma Stern, Maggie Laubser, William Kentridge, Marlene Dumas, Asha Zero, Anton Kannemeyer, Tracy Payne, Claudette Schreuders, Mary Sibande, Pieter Hugo and Roelof van Wyk.
