Bell-Roberts south africa gallery
A crash course in contemporary South African art. A cache of Good Hope 

Stand in a room filled with South African art and you realise how precious little of it you are exposed to. The artists present aren’t surprised, or offended. “You’ve probably only heard of William Kentbridge,” offers Kevin Brand graciously. Brand himself is a master of media, using prosaic symbols to make serious social and political commentary.

Cape Africa

has launched Trans Cape, South Africa's first and largest contemporary African art exhibition, which will open in Cape Town on September 23 and run for four weeks. Work from approximately 70 contemporary artists from across Africa will be showcased.

Landmarks in the globalisation of modern African art

Contemporary African art is experiencing a renaissance in the West, moving beyond the primitivism of 1906 when western artists were influenced by traditional African art, and which sparked off a trend in the 1930s and 1940s of showing African artworks in the West.

Seydou Keita: From tin of negatives, mural-sized conflicts

Even by the elevated standard of the New York art world, the rumor was exceptional: a tin of negatives buried in Africa for three decades that, when opened, revealed the work of a photographer who was neither "outsider" nor "indigenous" but spectacularly modern. And so the bejeweled and bohemian showed up at the Gagosian Gallery the evening of Oct. 18, 1997, wearing Fulani bracelets beneath their Charvet cuffs, blouses referencing Matisse referencing North African fabrics, Xhosa men in dinner jackets.
