Against the Grain: Five Sculptures in Wood

This exhibition, entitled Against the Grain, displays a series of works by five talented black African wood sculptors from the Western Cape, including Isaac Makeleni, Ishmael Thyssen, Stepherd Mbanya, Timothy Mafenuka and Thami Kiti. These artists had to work for many years under difficult conditions, due to the lack of support given to wood artists in South Africa, and were progressively excluded from the South African artistic landscape.
