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.
Join Goodman Gallery this First Thursdays for bubbles and a live vinyl set by DJ Mxolisi Makhubo alongside Sam Nhlengethwa’s exhibition ‘Joburg Selected’.
In ‘Joburg Selected’, Sam Nhlengethwa’s distinctive collage practice has made a version of the city that draws on his own aesthetic preferences, memories and the history of the city to playfully provide a space that holds within its imaginary street views all the hustle and bustle and crazy juxtapositions that characterise much of the inner-city space.' - Tymon Smith for Times LIVE
In addition to mixed media works on canvas, Joburg Selected features lithographic prints. Popular night spots such as Kitcheners and the now-defunct The Orbit are depicted in these scenes, “to remind people that we used to listen to good sounds there”. Another large work brings together several of the city’s iconic high rises into a made-up mise en scene and is titled, I Love Jozi, which for Nhlengethwa about “sums it up”
