Shooting Down Babylon

Opening: 18 February 2022 - 28 August 2022

The Zeitz of Contemporary Art Africa (Zeitz MOCAA) presents an exciting large-scale retrospective exhibition by South African multimedia artist Tracey Rose.
 
Derived from the title of Rose’s iconic installation Shooting Down Babylon (The Art of War) (2016), which reflects on varied exorcist and cleansing rituals, the retrospective will interrogate several themes, including repatriation, recompense and reckoning, and epitomises the wide-ranging medium and concerns prevalent in Rose’s practice. This body of work is an important investigation around post-apartheid legacies and liberation movements, and uses the body – often Rose’s own body – as a site for protest, outrage, resistance and pertinent discourse. For the artist, the body is a channel for the demonstration of exasperation, aggravation, disruption and paradox.

Participating: Tracey Rose
