29 Nov-19 Jan. This exhibition displays the audio-visual works by Jared Thorne, the 2012 Donald Gordon Creative Arts Fellow, who presents his new vision of Black South Africans.
Thorne is in constant search of expressions of black middle class culture and is particularly interested in how the black identity is created in Cape Town and in the global south. He faces issues of race, class and gender and engages questions of authenticity, representation and history. His works combine large scale film photographs with excerpts from various interviews, which challenge self-imposed constructs of black identity. Thorne invites viewers to redefine their conceptual understanding of modern black culture.
