Jol

The South African slang word 'jol', pronounced 'jawl', both a noun and a verb, means 'a party' or similar social occasion, or 'having a good time'. South Africa's past has been fraught with conflict, culminating in violent political oppression and brutality in response to both colonialism and the State's opposition during the apartheid years. And yet, human beings will always play. Many artists and photographers have responded creatively to social interactions and the personal dialogues within them in spite of and sometimes because of their circumscription by racially determined social structures. The exhibition will include work by Billy Monk and Graham Goddard.
