Defining The Narrative | Group Show: Cape Town

3 December 2015 - 18 January 2016

Gallery MOMO Cape Town will be presenting a fresh range of paintings this summer in an attempt to redefine this fascinating medium in the 21st Century. Defining the Narrative intends to examine the scope and extent of paint through the gaze of emerging South African painters and mixed-media artists. This includes:


Alexandra Karakashian, Swain Hoogervorst, Gina Heyer, Pebofatso Mokoena, Marlene Steyn and Ziyanda Majozi.

In the age of technological advancements, paint continues to hold its own. It is a medium that carries an extensive history and yet is open to manipulation and reconstruction today. Defining the Narrative attempts to critically examine the practice of paint in the present moment through a range of diverse practitioners. In juxtaposition to this will be paintings by established painters represented by Gallery MOMO including Florine Demosthene, Robert Pruitt, Blessing Ngobeni, Vitshois Mwilambwe Bondo, Jonathan Hindson, Joël Mpah Dooh and Kimathi Donkor. This situation will allow viewers to appreciate the contrasting perspectives of painters from different generations.
