Event description

Description

We invite you to attend our screening of the “JOHANNESBURG” episode of Art21’s Art in the Twenty-First Century, featuring David Goldblatt, Nicholas Hlobo, Zanele Muholi, and Robin Rhode. After the episode, the Women's Mobile Museum will engage in a discussion about the episode and talk about their experience working with Muholi.

Since the dramatic fall of apartheid in 1994, Johannesburg has emerged as the artistic capital of sub-Saharan Africa. This episode tells the story of four South African artists from a range of ethnic backgrounds, identities, and generations working across photography, painting, sculpture, and performance. Collectively, the artists in this hour use their work to empower marginalized communities, reexamine history, and pursue their visions for South Africa’s future.

This event is produced in collaboration with Art21, a nonprofit global leader in art education, producing preeminent films on today’s leading visual artists and education programs that inspire creativity worldwide.
