Animals are Good to Think With at Guns & Rain Gallery

Monday, April 1st, 2019

It’s hard to believe that almost exactly a year ago, Guns & Rain opened their new space in Parkhurst, Johannesburg. They are please to present their quirky and provocative new group show, “Animals are Good to Think With”,  featuring Ann Gollifer (Botswana), Vernon Reed (South Africa), Tawanda Takura (Zimbabwe) and Rosemarie Marriott (South Africa).

In 1962, French structural anthropologist Claude Lévi-Strauss, in his work on totemism, coined the famous – now even clichéd – phrase that “animals are good to think with”. He argued that animals were not simply good to eat; nor were they simply objects of identification or symbolism, but rather part of a structure of human thinking that was common across all societies.

The exhibition is ongoing through April 12th.

ODETTA presents Falling into Place

Tuesday, February 12th, 2019

ODETTA is pleased to present Falling into Place with Daniel G. Hill, Norma Márquez Orozco, and Mary Schiliro.

Using gravity as a tool for their image making, these three artists works move us to consider more seriously the connection between abstraction and self-portrait. Through invented systems that nudge their materials along until their artwork makes itself, Daniel G. Hill, Norma Márquez Orozco, and Mary Schiliro playfully poke at the larger effects we all must endure as our planet spins. By attempting to harness the Earth and Moon’s magnetic pull, we see in these three a common personality emerge, artist/explorer, author and spectator.

Exhibition closes February 24th, 2019. Artists talk on Sunday February 17th at 3:00pm.

Endolllentions at Ivy Brown Gallery

Monday, February 4th, 2019

Ivy Brown Gallery continues this years programing with ‘Endollenations’ a playful yet poignant body of work by Thedra Cullar-Ledford.

For this series Thedra Cullar-Ledford paints the bodies of models to look like a doll of their choice, photographs them in poses accentuating their objectness, and then paints onto the prints to further enhance the “doll-ness” of the image. In these deceptively straightforward works, she uses the visual vocabulary of dolls to blur the line between an actual living-and-breathing person and the socially-or commercially-distorted representations of how a person should present themselves to us as viewers.

Opening reception
Tuesday, February 5, 6-8pm Exhibition dates February 5-March 5
