What Is It?
The Stevenson Gallery presents ‘Objects of Desire, Addendum’, by Meleko Mokgosi. This will be his second solo exhibition with the gallery and his first in Johannesburg.
‘Objects of Desire, Addendum’ exists as a postscript to Mokgosi’s acclaimed, long-standing visual essay, ‘Democratic Intuition’. This essay questioned how artists may approach the conceptual promises of democracy, in relation to the daily lived experiences of the subjects that occupy southern Africa.
The exhibition examines the contemporary African object, with the aim of challenging the legacy of African art as a tool for modernists in developing their own methodologies. Interspersed between the paintings of objects, Mokgosi presents texts taken from MoMA’s authorial labels for Primitivism and Objects of Desire, overlaid with his own annotations and research.
Be sure to see the exhibition at the Stevenson Gallery before it closes in October.
