Lhola Amira – Looking for Ghana & The Red Suitcase

The South African artist engaged with current issues of contention while she was on the continent, through a number of appearances and interactions. In her signature fusion of politics, economics and art, Lhola Amira developed Looking for Ghana & The Red Suitcase as the first installment of further physical investigations into assumption, contradictions and associations placed on contemporary definitions of Africa.

Robin Rhode – Path and Fields

Rhode makes drawings spontaneously, whether he works on paper, canvas, the walls of Johannesburg or the walls inside the gallery. He acts like a composer in assembling this exhibition, bringing together individual pieces that range from the peculiar, muted and elusive to the expressive, effervescent and even boisterous.
