Closet is Brett Charles Seiler’s first exhibition with Goodman Gallery. Taking the form of painting and installation, the exhibition continues Seiler’s ongoing interest in themes of longing, distance and nostalgia.
Seiler describes his work as a straight-forward “coming of age narrative“, taking place during the gay rights movement. Born in 1994, Seiler did not personally experience this period of history. Instead, the artist accesses it through references to historic gay modes of communication and conduct, incorporating figurative forms as well as text and language to tell these stories through poetic snapshots of a time before gay liberation in South African society.
Those interested are invited to join the opening of the exhibition at 11am for coffee and croissants.
Venue: Goodman Gallery, 163 Jan Smuts Avenue, Parkwood, Johannesburg
Time: Tues to Fri 9.30am to 5.30pm | Sat 9.30am to 4pm | Closed Monday
