MAJAK BREDELL: THE NEW YORK YEARS 1981-2003

14 March 2020 - 17 January 2021

When Majak Bredell emigrated to New York in 1981 with her husband and two young children she embarked on a journey that would lead her from the confines of a traditional marriage on to the riches this world-city had to offer the searching artist. The Association of Arts, Pretoria in conjunction with the Pretoria Art Museum will be mounting an extensive retrospective exhibition, MAJAK BREDELL: THE NEW YORK YEAR 1981-2003 curated by Prof. Elfriede Dreyer. The works on show at both the venues cover a period of 22 years that follow the trajectory of the artist’s initial confrontations with issues of belonging and dis-belonging as the chasm between her mother country and her adopted home were mediated in both image and poetry. Several artist’s books with images and bilingual poems resulted from this.
