Tresses and Other Recent Projects

Jointly published by Michael Stevenson and the Johannesburg Art Gallery to accompany exhibitions at both these venues, the catalogue features an essay by JAG curator Khwezi Gule and an interview with Gaba by Joost Bosland, highlighting the importance of humour and play in Gaba's work. The South African Tresses - iconic buildings translated into braided wigs made from artificial hair - are reproduced along with images of recent works at venues including Tate Modern, SMAK Ghent, and the 2006 Sydney Biennale.
