Art21: Johannesburg

Nov 15, 6:00PM – 8:00PM

Join us for a screening and discussion of Art in the Twenty-First Century's new episode focusing on artists of Johannesburg: David Goldblatt, Nicholas Hlobo, Robin Rhode, and Zanele Muholi (who has show work at WNG before, in our exhibition In Acts). Since the dramatic fall of apartheid in 1994, Johannesburg has emerged as the artistic capital of sub-Saharan Africa. This episode tells the story of four South African artists from a range of ethnic backgrounds, identities, and generations working across photography, painting, sculpture, and performance. Collectively, the artists in this hour use their work to empower marginalized communities, reexamine history, and pursue their visions for South Africa’s future.

This event is produced in collaboration with Art21, a nonprofit global leader in art education, producing preeminent films on today’s leading visual artists and education programs that inspire creativity worldwide.
