Exhibition statement: “As South Africa celebrates its 20th year of democracy, having made a peaceful transition from apartheid state to a new and more equitable dispensation, this show seeks to show a slice of South African existence through contemporary art. While it is in celebration of this milestone, the exhibition itself does not necessarily unpack the notion of democracy but rather looks across the scope of what it means to have been a South African over the last 20 years. The show thus explores issues of social conditions, like land issues, HIV/Aids and resistance art and juxtaposes these with more positive aspects like the Mandela years and the influence of traditional craft on contemporary South African art” – Appalachian State University.
