Silence calling from one continent to another

9 October 2021 - 10 November 2021

Goodman Gallery is pleased to present Silence calling from one continent to another, a group exhibition featuring artists whose works contain or consider corporeal forms in both direct and poetic manners.
'Silence calling from one continent to another' appears in William Kentridge's large charcoal drawing, Love Songs from the Last Century, and is taken from Kentridge’s processional opera The Head & the Load, and refers to mutual incomprehension between Africa and Europe. The paradoxical nature of this phrase speaks to modes of communication, and the difficulty often encountered due to cultural differences, distance or geography.
Presented alongside the exhibition, is a pairing of photographs by Jabulani Dhlamini and his mentor David Goldblatt. An additional presentation in the viewing room features a selection of works by South African Masters Walter Batiss, David Koloane, and Sam Nhlengethwa.

Participating: Clive van den Berg, Nolan Oswald Dennis,  Nicholas Hlobo,  William Kentridge,  Kapwani Kiwanga,  Georgina Maxim,  Gerhard Marx,  Sepideh Mehraban,  Ravelle Pillay,  Mikhael Subotzky,  Pamela Phatsimo Sunstrum,  Jeremy Wafer
