Upcoming Events at Goodman, Cape Town

Goodman Gallery will be open late for ‘ Gallery Night’ on Wednesday 13 September, 5:30 – 8:30pm. Performances will start at 7pm and include Angolan/South African duo *Kutala Chopeto* performing *Crocodile Lovers* and *Grada Kilomba* delivering her *Plantation Memories *lecture performance. Shuttle buses will be available to take guests between venues as various galleries in Woodstock will be open late. The artists will be available for interviews.


Curated by Emma Laurence, *the silences between* brings together a powerful selection of work that presents viewpoints outside of the grand narratives of officially recorded history: everyday stories of human connectedness, marginalised perspectives and alternative histories. It includes a number of important new work including, among others, *Nolan Oswald Dennis*’ *Ecliptic (Black Liberation Zodiac), *which maps the emerging zodiac from the perspective of the south, placing the sequence of constellations anti-clockwise (as they appear in the Southern Hemisphere) and inscribing it with symbols from black liberation history. The curator and selected artists will be available for interviews. The show includes a specially curated *Film Programme* in our Video Room on street level, as well as a *Performance Programme *for Gallery Night on Wednesday 13 September at 5:30pm



Alongside our own exhibitions, Goodman Gallery artists are well-represented in major shows at other institutions at this time. At Maitland Institute, Mikhael Subotzky presents *Yellow Bile (Or Work in Progress)* from 14 Sept–31 Oct. This solo show marks new directions for Subotzky: continuing his process of “getting inside” his images, he works for the first time with paint and ink on canvas. He also collaborates on a performance with collective *The Brother Moves On*, titled *Four Rehearsals in the Yellow Bile*, which will take place within the exhibition on the opening night (14 September). Both Mikhael Subotzky and members of The Brother Moves On will be available for interviews.



Artists in the gallery’s roster are well-represented in the inaugural shows of the new Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (MOCAA). *Kudzanai Chiurai’*s *Regarding the Pain of Others* is one of three solo mid-career retrospectives that the museum is featuring in its opening. Eight other Goodman Gallery artists have work included in the Zeitz MOCAA’s inaugural group show, *All things being equal… –* *Hank Willis Thomas, Ghada Amer, Liza Lou, Kendell Geers, William Kentridge, Yinka Shonibare, El Anatsui and Misheck Masamvu*.

Kudzanai Chiurai, Liza Lou and Kendell Geers will be available for interviews – with other artists to confirmed closer to the time.
