YOUNGBLACKMAN

A new gallery opening in the East City on 69 Roeland Street. Conceived two weeks ago by artist Ed Young and writer M. Blackman, it opens its door Sept 29. YOUNGBLACKMAN is based on the business model of gross capital loss and aims to exhibit artists. As the inaugural exhibition, the gallery will showcase artist Sue Williamson’s Better Lives.

In this series of six video portraits, migrants, exiles and refugees listen to a previously recorded version of their life story for the first time. The subjects portray, in their facial expressions and poses, the seriousness and pathos of their stories.

As an established artist who has had many major local and international exhibitions as well as having published notable books on South African art, Williamson will be launching her much-awaited book South African Art Now at The Book Lounge on the evening.

Kimberley Hotel afterward.
