A Continent Beyond
From September 14 to October 14, 2017, Gallery MOMO Cape Town will present A Continent Beyond, a group exhibition featuring Roger Ballen, Stephane Conradie, Florine Demosthene, Kimathi Donkor, Modupeola Fadugba, Dumile Feni, George Hallett, Ayana V Jackson, Coby Kennedy, Dillon Marsh, Maurice Mbikayi, Kenrick McFarlane, Sethembile Msezane, Pedro Pires, Curtis Talwst Santiago, Mary Sibande, Ransome Stanley, Pamela Phatsimo Sunstrum, Andrew Tshabangu and Khaya Witbooi. These artists have all defined and redefined contemporary art within and beyond our borders.
The exhibition offers an occasion to reflect on the multiple journeys both from the artists, and also from Gallery MOMO. Over the past fourteen years, the gallery has challenged the seams that bind the South African art scene and burst into the international scene with a certain degree of conviction that has captured a changing country and continent through her artists.
Today, the continent stands at a particular moment to define not just herself, but history, art and space all together. This is a moment beyond republics and invisible borders drafted by men who stand now as monumentalised ghosts of the past – this is a continent beyond.
