David Goldblatt, “Strange Instrument”
February 26 - March 27
David Goldblatt was renowned for creating powerful images that revealed the complex and far-reaching dynamics of apartheid, as well as the post-apartheid conditions that continue to impact his native country to this day.
Curated by South African artist and activist Zanele Muholi in collaboration with Yancey Richardson Gallery, David Goldblatt: Strange Instrument presents 45 vintage prints by the late South African photographer. The exhibition groups the works into idiosyncratic categories that reflect Muholi’s deeply personal engagement with the work of Goldblatt, who was a teacher, a mentor, and a friend. Muholi’s own work explores similarly complex issues of gender, labor, and race that continue to permeate contemporary South African society.
