Staatliche Kunstsammlungen, Dresden, Germany


The Johannesburg art scene – an exhibition by the Galerie Neue Meister (New Master Gallery) of the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden at the Kunsthalle in the Lipsiusbau. From October 26, 2013 to January 5, 2014, Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden will be showing the temporary exhibition My Joburg. The Johannesburg art scene. It was previously held with great success at La Maison Rouge – Fondation Antoine de Galbert in Paris.

The exhibition presents works by some 50 artists. Photographs, installations, sculptures, sketches and videos tell visitors about the buzzing art scene in Johannesburg, a city that is home to eight million and shaped by social upheaval.

My Joburg was organised by La Maison Rouge – Fondation Antoine de Galbert, Paris, with the support of the National Art Council (NAC) of the Republic of South Africa and the Institut Français, under the curatorial direction of Paula Aisemberg and Antoine de Galbert.

Emmanuel's manière noire stone lithograph titled "number 05000674PV" was selected by the museum's curators for this exhibition. This hand printed lithograph is one of a suite of five lithographs titled TRANSITIONS MULTIPLES. TRANSITIONS MULTIPLES is the second body of work from Emmanuel's Transitions Project.
