REPRESENTATIONS OF OTHERNESS AND RESISTANCE
Johannes Stegmann Art Gallery, University of the Free State, Bloemfonein, South Africa

 

The Johannes Stegmann Art Gallery presents the exhibition "Representations of Otherness and Resistance" in collaboration with the Centre for Africa Studies at the University of the Free State (UFS) from the 20th of May to 19th of June 2015. The exhibition is part of a five year multi-disciplinary project that seeks to capture the mult-layered nuances of spatial, temporal and sonic dynamics within the context of Africa (and more specifically South Africa) as these relate to the core pillars of various artistic and alternative creative forms of representation of otherness and resistance. The exhibition runs together with a colloquium, seminars and the Africa Day Memorial Lecture by Prof Alcinda Honwana planned for the week of the 20th of May. A critical dialogue session on the exhibition also takes place on the 21st of May, facilitated by Prof Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela.

The exhibition is co-curated by Annali Dempsey from the UJ Art Gallery and Angela de Jesus (UFS). It includes a selection of works from institutional collections namely, the Oliewenhuis Art Museum, William Humphrey's Art Gallery, University of Johannesburg and University of the Free State collections. The exhibition is presented with an exhibition catalogue which includes academic articles by Prof Heidi Hudson (UFS), Prof Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela (UFS), Landi Raubenheimer (UJ) and Wilhelm van Rensburg (UJ).

3SAI: A RITE OF PASSAGE was selected by the curators for this exhibition.
