Stevenson Gallery presents ‘Objects of Desire, Addendum’, Stevenson’s second solo exhibition with Meleko Mokgosi. It also marks his first in Johannesburg.
The exhibition exists as a postscript to Mokgosi’s acclaimed, long-standing visual essay, ‘Democratic Intuition’, of which ‘Comrades’, exhibited at Stevenson, Cape Town, in 2016, was the second of eight chapters.
Comprising painting and sculpture, ‘Democratic Intuition’ questioned how one can approach the conceptual promises of democracy in relation to the daily lived experiences of the subjects that occupy southern Africa.
As the closing chapters of the project, ‘Objects of Desire’ – shown at Honor Fraser, Los Angeles, in 2018 – and ‘Objects of Desire, Addendum’ jointly examine the contemporary African object with the aim of challenging the legacy of African art as a tool for modernists in developing their own methodologies.
Venue: Stevenson Gallery, 46 7th Ave, Johannesburg
Time: Mon to Fri 9am to 5pm | Sat 10am to 1pm
