Art 21-Ecology
Art 21-Johannesburg
Thursday,  April 25, 2019
7:00pm

Sponsored by Michael Adams and by an anonymous donor  

The last screening of this special Soper Reese Theatre series finishes out with two episodes. The Ecology segment explores how our understanding of the natural world becomes deeply cultural. Featured artists are Ursula von Rydingsvard, Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle, Robert Adams, and Mark Dion.

The Johannesburg episode features David Goldblatt who used photography as a means of social criticism during Apartheid. Nicholas Hlobo explores issues of masculinity and sexuality in South African culture, and Zanele Muholi creates work that asserts the presence of South Africa’s LGBTI community. For young artist, Robin Rhode, urban walls become his canvases where static images are put into motion.
