An Invincible Spirit
Participating: WAM is celebrating the 90th anniversary of the birth of Johannesburg-born artist Albert Adams (1929-2006) with a retrospective exhibition. Adams was refused entry to Michaelis School of Fine Art at UCT because of Apartheid, but went on to study at the Slade School of Art in London, the University of Munich, under Oskar Kokoschka and lecture in Art History at City University, London for 18 years. Although he left South Africa in 1960 he visited frequently and consistently returned to the depiction of themes related to his country of birth. His paintings, drawings and prints reveal a visceral expressionism, deep social commitment and searing commentary. Subject matter includes powerful reflections on the outcasts of society, incarceration, the dark side of celebration and religious imagery./default.htm >
