Helen Sebidi: 8 September 2018 - 24 January 2019

Featuring drawings and paintings from a career spanning five decades, this exhibition will look at Helen Sebidi’s (born South Africa, 1943) continued dedication to issues of non-western mythologies, ancestry and traditional African value systems. Through the relationship between dreams and ancestry, Sebidi references the politicisation of landscape, and its relationship to growth and issues of creation. Curated by Portia Malatjie.


Prism - Wim Botha: 29 September 2018 - 28 January 2019

Wim Botha (born South Africa, 1974) has developed a singular visual language through the interpretation and questioning of icons from the natural world, including African fauna, European regalia, architectural motifs and works of art historical significance. This exhibition will bring together key works in Botha’s career, including commune: suspension of disbelief (2001) and Prism 13 (Dead Pietà) (2015), alongside a new major and immersive installation. Curated by Owen Martin.


On the Mines - David Goldblatt: 13 February - 29 August 2019

David Goldblatt’s (born South Africa, 1930) photographic series On the Mines, exhibited as a complete set for the first time, documents the communities and landscape associated with the gold mines of Gauteng, South Africa in the 1960s and 1970s. This exhibition will be accompanied by texts written by Nobel Laureate, Nadine Gordimer, which sensitively responds to Goldblatt’s photographs. Curated by Karel Nel.


Sculpture Garden - Yinka Shonibare: 13 February 2019 - Ongoing

Following its acquisition by the Homestead Art Collection, Norval Foundation will unveil Yinka Shonibare’s (born United Kingdom, 1962) Wind Sculpture (SG) III (2018) as part of the permanent display in our Sculpture Garden on 13 February 2019. Shonibare’s practice considers how colonial and postcolonial representations and identities function within complex historical and contemporary networks, particularly in the relationship between Africa and Europe.


Ibrahim Mahama: 13 February - 18 August 2019

Ibrahim Mahama’s (born Ghana, 1971) practice, predominantly focused on installation and architectural interventions, questions Africa’s role in the global exchange of commodities and the way labour is valued. This is suggested by the materials Mahama employs, such as hessian sacks that bear traces of cocoa production and used shoe shine kits. Norval Foundation has invited Mahama to create a site sensitive work. Curated by Owen Martin.

We are proud to announce a free talk by Ibrahim Mahama at Norval Foundation on the 27th of August at 3pm, more details to follow.
