THEN I KNEW I WAS GOOD AT PAINTING: ESTHERMAHLANGU, A RETROSPECTIVE

Located at the Iziko South African National Gallery.

The exhibition is titled: Then I knew I was good at painting: Esther Mahlangu, a Retrospective. It covers her over 50-year-long career and her rise as a contemporary artist with global acclaim.

The exhibition will be open to the South African public until August of this year. It will then begin its global tour.

Through the language of colour and form, the exhibition charts Dr Esther Mahlangu’s contribution to contemporary art, spanning over seven decades. More than 100 artworks have been loaned from international collections, carefully curated alongside historic photographs and a short film.

Included in the exhibition is Mahlangu’s BMW 525i Art Car, which makes its historic return to South Africa for the first time in more than 30 years.

The retrospective pays homage to her unique approach to art, which intersects African cultures with modernity and the contemporary.
