Goodman Gallery: From Tomorrow 5th May: Frieze New York Online with Yinka Shonibare, Kapwani Kiwanga and David Ajaye | Memories

For the inaugural edition of Frieze New York Viewing Room, Goodman Gallery presents Memories: a selection of historically significant work by artists working on the African continent and in the Diaspora. These works all unpack the dynamics of memory and time.

Highlights include:

The US premiere of William Kentridge’s flipbook film Waiting for the Sibyl (2020), created in connection with his opera that premiered at Teatro dell’Opera di Rome last year.

The international debut of Yinka Shonibare CBE’s African Library Collections – an excerpt from a large-scale installation of 200 books dedicated to African writers that forges an alternative perspective of African struggles for independence – previously only exhibited in South Africa.

Kapwani Kiwanga and Sir David Adjaye’s collaborative sculpture Sanfoka Pavilion (2019) made for the Whitechapel Gallery’s highly anticipated This is Tomorrow exhibition last year.

David Goldblatt’s rarely exhibited photographic series While Waiting in Traffic (1967), made the same year South African police began covert social surveillance.

Mikhael Subotzky and Patrick Waterhouse present the Lightbox from the iconic Ponte City project, to be exhibited at SF MoMA in 2021.

New work by Ruby Onyinyechi Amanze, Kudzanai Chiurai, Misheck Masamvu, Cassi Namoda and Pamela Phatsimo Sunstrum. More details here.
