Two Solo Exhibitions

12 August 2021 - 18 September 2021

Goodman Gallery Cape Town is pleased to present Shirin Neshat and Distant Visions: Postcards from Africa concurrent solo exhibitions by Shirin Neshat and Sue Williamson. Both artists are known for works that address overlooked histories and the lived experience of individuals not often prioritised by society. 
Shirin Neshat and Distant Visions: Postcards from Africa come at a notable time for both artists. Williamson's much-lauded recent exhibition at Goodman Gallery London, Testimony, was her first solo show in the UK, coming ahead of a major upcoming exhibition at the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia. Neshat's traveling solo exhibition I Will Greet The Sun Again, first shown at The Broad in 2019, has just finished its run at The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth and later this year the artist will hold a solo exhibition at Somerset House as part of her selection as this year's Master Photographer for Photo London.
Neshat's first solo exhibition in Cape Town brings together a video installation Sarah, a photographic still from Roja and Offerings, a series of recent photographic-based works, which through different means incorporate Neshat's interest in the interior lives of women.
Williamson's new series of drawings, Postcards from Africa, continues the artist's interest in the power of a small printed image to carry news of a specific moment in time to a far off audience, sometimes current, sometimes separated from the event by a century.
