THE ART MOMENTUM | INVESTEC CAPE TOWN ART FAIR

In this artpaper, uniquely conceived for the seventh iteration of the Investec Cape Town Art Fair (ICTAF), The Art Momentum takes a critical, conversational approach in examining the work of a few selected artists, whose approach is engaged with socio-political issues and urges us to reflect on ‘alternative visions’ of our world and futures.

THE ART MOMENTUM | AKAA PARIS

La troisième édition de la foire d’art contemporain parisienne interroge sur les notions de Nord, de Sud et plus particulièrement de « Sud Global » à travers une sélection d’artistes et une programmation culturelle mettant en exergue les relations entre ces différents territoires.

Steve Bandoma appartient au groupe Librisme Synergie qui mêle performances, photographie, peinture, collage, détournement d’images... Ses œuvres à connotation politique témoignent le plus souvent d’une société « malade » et de politiques contestables... @SteveBandoma
.
Pathy Tschindele et Kura Shomali du groupe Eza Possible (tout est possible) réinterprètent non sans humour des figures politiques, musicales ou sportives ... dont seuls les uniformes ou médailles attestent de leur pouvoir. #pathytshindele
.
Houston Maludi prolonge l’« Ecole de la Ligne » de son maître kinois Kamba Luesa pour développer à partir de 2008 ce qu’il nomme le « Monochrome Cubisme Symbiotique Quantique » reconnaissable par un encombrement de fines lignes noires nous immergeant au cœur des mégalopoles africaines et du monde. @HoustonMaludi

KEHINDE WILEY, visual artist, exhibition opening in Paris @galerietemplon #ParisCapitalOfArts 🤩
.
OPENING ON SATURDAY, MAY 18, 2019 FROM NOON TO 8 PM. For the occasion of @parisgalleryweekend, the exhibition will be open on Sunday, May 19, 2019 from 12 pm to 7 pm.
.
Kehinde Wiley, star of the American art scene and Barack Obama’s official portrait artist, is back in Paris. For his first Parisian exhibition since the 2016 show at Petit Palais, he will be unveiling a new series of paintings and a video-installation based on his time spent this past year in Tahiti.
.
As the artist explains, “‘I am interested in transformation and artifice. My newest exhibition will engage with the history of France and its outward facing relationship to black and brown bodies, specifically relating to sexual proclivity. Gauguin features heavily in the imagination of France and her global interface – with that comes an entire history of complicated gazing. I interrogate, subsume, and participate in discourse about Māhū, about France, and about the invention of gender.’

SAMUEL LEVI JONES, visual artist, first exhibition in Paris @galerielelongparis  #ParisCapitalOfArts 🤩
.
Opening on Saturday 18 May from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. Walkthrough with the artist @slevijones at 4 p.m. @galerielelongparis @parisgalleryweekend
.
For his first exhibition in Paris, entitled Let Us Grow, the artist has produced a set of new works. In addition to using obsolete institutional publications (encyclopedias, law books, manuals of medicine, etc.), Jones has worked with vintage portfolios, boxes and bindings for French art prints, thus addressing a new European material relating to art history.
.
As the artist explains, “I am ultimately thinking about information that is selectively left out.” His works examine urgent questions of how brutality is embedded in institutional systems such as law enforcement, education, and the medical industry.

Dead Eye by KEMANG WALEHULERE, 2018.
.
This installation scatters a constellation of shadows around the room. Fashioned from salvaged school desks, the small discs hanging from the ceiling are in fact the extracted doorways from many bird boxes the artist has used in his sculptures over the past years. For WaLehulere the bird box represents home, and the displacement that many South Africans suffered under apartheid zoning laws. @kewangwalehulere

Big Wheel by ARTHUR JAFA, 2018.
.
Arthur Jafa’s artistic practice is invested in black modes of expressivity, and the challenge of how to render the world from the vantage of black being across different mediums. @anamibia
