A crash course in contemporary South African art. A cache of Good
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

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

showing African artworks in the West.
Seydou Keita: From tin of negatives,
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

cuffs, blouses referencing Matisse referencing North African fabrics, Xhosa
men in dinner jackets.
