Exceeding Return I Curtis 'Talwst' Santiago: Johannesburg

20 April - 10 June 2017

Gallery MOMO is proud to present Exceeding Return, the first solo exhibition in South Africa by multifaceted artist Curtis Talwst Santiago.


Curtis Talwst Santiago’s practice explores issues of transculturalism, memory and ancestry in the contemporary Diasporic experience. Santiago’s infinity series of miniature dioramas in reclaimed ring boxes consider the absence of certain narratives in dominant culture and draw on the tradition of storytelling to question the production of historical understanding.
