3 July - 24 September @ Rencontres d'Arles
Drowning World explores the human dimension of climate change by focusing on floods across geographical and cultural boundaries.
Rather than the literal depiction of disaster zones, Gideon Mendel focuses on the personal impact of flooding to evoke our shared vulnerability to global warming and question our sense of stability in the world.
9 August - 13 November 2017 @ Iziko South African National Gallery
This contemporary multimedia installation is based on The African Choir’s first tour to Victorian England in 1891.
Seen for the first time in South Africa, it presents five songs recreated by the composers from an original nineteenth-century concert programme, along with twenty photographic portraits of the choir members rediscovered in London at the Hulton Archive after 125 years.
Featuring songs composed and arranged by Philip Miller and Thuthuka Sibisi. Curated by Renée Mussai.
