JOHANNESBURG - EVERARD READ JOHANNESBURG
Zoo, organised by David’s wife Pippa Skotnes, brother-in-law John Skotnes, and Martin Wilson, represents both a continuation of the work and themes that had been at the heart of David’s practice over many years, and a shift in a new direction.
For David, the thread running through all his work was a yearning to understand what he saw as the very extremes of human experience – pain and cruelty, and beauty and freedom – and to find peace from these irreconcilable paradoxes in the expansive space of the wilderness areas of the country he loved./default.htm > David J.

JOHANNESBURG - CIRCA ON JELLICOE
through colonialism, apartheid and economic imperialism.
As with his lifelong focus on ancient societies, in this work, Slingsby exposes the ways in which inequality is manipulated, legislated and institutionalised to suit an elite. He confronts the issues of ethnic identity and identity politics, as well as the attendant problems of patronage, and the distortion of good governance. He also acknowledges the inherent instability of fixing or freezing social categories and their susceptibility to the overlapping dynamics of culture, economics and politics. And through his work he expresses outrage at the uneven trade-off between history, identity, livelihood and the often bitter fruits of so-called civilisation which, for the poor and the marginalised, often bring servitude, displacement and the status of exiles even within their own lands./default.htm > Robert Slingsby *

A Black Aesthetic: A View of South African Artists (1970 -1990), curated by Standard Bank Gallery manager and curator Dr. Same Mdluli, features the work of Black artists from various backgrounds, whose style and approach to artmaking are distinctly each of their own. Aiming to encourage a more critical engagement of these artists whose works have historically been neglected, A Black Aesthetic attempts to reposition their expression within the larger South African art historical narrative and redefine ways of discussing their work - challenging existing notions of what constitutes South African art history. Other themes in the exhibition, examines the contentious label of “township art”, a terminology which has been critiqued for its limitations in labelling and boxing Black artists from this locale./default.htm > Gerard Sekoto, George Pemba, Dumile Feni, Gladys Mgudlandlu and more. *
