Otherscapes: Four Installations by Four Contemporary South African Artists
28 June – 4 November 2023
Otherscapes proposes surveying the scene of contemporary South Africa through the artistic practices of four contemporary South African artists whose installations can be viewed as ‘scapes’. These address a local context by interrogating the tension between utopia and failure. Siemon Allen, Wim Botha, Sethembile Msezane and Nicholas Hlobo reflect their subjective views of South Africa by embodying narratives that elucidate the complex issues in which the country is entangled.
The exhibition introduces the South African-focused programme taking place at JCAF during 2023, which will culminate in the inaugural journal launch in December.
