On the exhibition Re(as)sisting Narratives:
Re(as)sisting Narratives explores lingering legacies of colonialism between South Africa and the Netherlands through engaging with contemporary artists from both countries. The exhibition is curated by Chandra Frank and is a result of a two-year project with South African based partners: District Six Museum and Centre for Curating the Archive. Participating artists explore broader themes such as race, gender, memory, trauma and spatiality in their work. This multi-media group exhibition features Mary Sibande, Sethembile Msezane, Mohau Modisakeng, Athi-Patra Ruga, Burning Museum Collective, Toni Stuart & Kurt Orderson, and Judith Westerveld. The artists in this show are connected by a shared interest in evoking and readdressing that what is left behind, that what is (in)visible, and a visual fusion of reality and fantasy to create new ways of being.
