Out of concern for the safety of visitors and staff, Everard Read Johannesburg will not be hosting any public exhibition openings, effective from 18 March 2020.
 
'The Portrait Show' will be on display at Everard Read as per usual working hours (9AM - 6PM Monday - Friday & 9AM - 1PM  on Saturdays) and they are following strict measures to keep both staff and clients safe. Private walkabout's of this exhibition can be requested by appointment only. 
 
 
THE PORTRAIT SHOW
 
Curated by Musa Nxumalo
 
“Portraiture” acts as the curatorial thread that Nxumalo uses to tie this expansive exhibition of artworks together.
 
The Portrait Show is not an exhibition solely concerned with the technical abilities of an artist to depict (or, in fact, obscure) a sitter. It is a quest to explore and borrow from the artists’ deliberations about the state of the world today. Over a series of studio visits, conversations and the revisiting of artists statements, Nxumalo has compiled a collection of diverse sentiments about the Anthropocene, explored and expressed by a vibrant group of artists based in South Africa and beyond.
