Painting a Picture of Stylistic Concerns

Can the realism of Jeremiah Quarshie, the naturalism of Kehinde Wiley, the abstraction of Chris Ofili, the expressionism of Misheck Masamvu, and the surrealism of Cheri Samba be a form of resistance towards the ownership of a predominant Western narrative of painting?” – Xola Mlwandle

Julia Kabat, the SAFIM Assistant Curator of Painting and Xola Mlwandle, the Wendy Fisher Assistant Curator of Painting will discuss and analyse the paintings in All Things Being Equal Part 3. This is an exhibition that represents the diverse stylistic approaches of painters across Africa and its Diaspora today. These modes of painting demonstrate how stylistic choices facilitate a multitude of conversations taking place around social and economic inequalities, issues of spirituality, remembrance and representation.

Kabat and Mlwandle will consider the stylistic categories used by artists in the 20th century and begin a comparative dialogue of how artists in Africa contribute towards this conversation around the dominant Western canon of Art History.

This event is free but RSVP. Please email Julia Kabat on julia.kabat@zeitzmocaa.museum to RSVP.

Please meet in the BMW Atrium bowl on level -1.
