Claiming Art Reclaiming Space: Post Apartheid Art From South Africa

The Smithsonian National Museum of African Art presents this Web version of an exhibition that examines the effects of Apartheid and the post-Apartheid era on artists' creative expression in South Africa. A quote by artist David Koloane introduces the show, "Apartheid was a politics of space more than anything. . . . Apartheid legislation was denying people the right to move." The exhibition has four sections: Claiming Art | Reclaiming Space, Artists and Apartheid, Art Centers and Workshops for Black Artists, and The Exhibition. Each has explanatory text and, in a band at the top of the screen, thumbnails of details from five related artworks presented. Clicking on any thumbnail opens a new window with a larger version of the work, and from this window, visitors can browse all of the art in that section in the larger format.
