Following his successful exhibition with the gallery in May this year and the publication of his much-debated Pappa in Afrika book, Anton Kannemeyer will show new works and a few classics from his Alphabet of Democracy series as part of the Summer 2010/11 exhibition. The artist has been working on this series for the past five years, chronicling the absurdities of life in the democratic South Africa; his imagery subverts the narrative, history and myth of the 'rainbow nation' with acute humour and critique. This exhibition will be accompanied by a book, published by Jacana, bringing together the works in the series.
The exhibition will open on Thursday 2 December 2010, 6-8pm, and close on Saturday 15 January 2011. The gallery will be open throughout the season except for public holidays. Gallery hours are Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm, and Saturday 10am to 1pm.
