Goodman Gallery is one of the most distinguished and longest-standing international contemporary art galleries. Established in Johannesburg in 1966, the gallery works with artists who are at once contemporary, influential and strive to shift perspectives and engender social transformation.
Founded during the era of apartheid, Goodman Gallery offered a non-discriminatory space when museums served the agenda of the autocratic government. Since 2008, under the directorship of Liza Essers, Goodman Gallery has expanded on this legacy, shifted its focus, and introduced numerous pivotal curatorial initiatives and partnerships.
Over Time serves as influential contemporary American artist, Carrie Mae Weems' first solo exhibition with Goodman Gallery and on the African continent.
Using photography, text, fabric, audio, digital images, installation and video, Weems compels viewers to actively consider how the world is structured, bringing to light systems of oppression and inequality while exploring the relationships between power, class, race and gender.
Over Time present several bodies of work, which look at these themes in relation to how the past comes to bear on the present. In this regard, Weems reflects on history in order to engage with the present and question where we might be going.
Over Time will be accompanied by an installation of Kudzanai Chiurai's extensive collection of vinyl records, which include a selection of Zimbabwean Chimurenga and South African anti-apartheid struggle music, as well as rare recordings of speeches by Ian Smith, Kwame Nkrumah, Mobutu Sese Seko, Dr Martin Luther King and a dramatic re-enactment of the trial of Black Panther co-founder Bobby Seale
