GOODMAN GALLERY CAPE TOWN
15 JULY – 12 AUGUST 2017
Goodman Gallery Cape Town launch Ghost Dance by Samson Kambalu, marking the artist’s first solo exhibition with the gallery. The Malawi-born multimedia artist will present a series of new short films – dubbed ‘Nyau Cinema’ – in which he explores concepts of time, ritual and values from a playful, non-Western perspective.
The exhibition comes at an exciting time in Kambalu’s career, having been recently appointed Associate Professor of Fine Art at Ruskin School of Art and elected fellow at Magdalen College, Oxford University, making him one of the few professors of African decent at this renowned university.
Kambalu is one of four cutting-edge international artists to have recently joined the Goodman Gallery roster. As a Malawian artist based in the UK, Kambalu’s work is pertinent to Goodman Gallery’s mission to expand the global conversation in the arts and redirect the flow of discourse and meaning-making from the South up.
