The Wits Art Museum (WAM) is to host the long-awaited exhibition of the legacy left to the collection by the late Robert Hodgins. This will be the most extensive exhibition ever of works on paper by the artist, and coincides with the publication by WAM of A Lasting Impression: The Robert Hodgins Print Archive. The exhibition will open on 26 February, and run until 7 April 2013, and provides an opportunity to see a comprehensive survey of the Hodgins’ diverse print output.

Various artists on Standard Bank Gallery’s latest group exhibition

Works by six Goodman Gallery artists – Lisa Brice, Kudzanai Chiurai, Hasan and Husain Essop, Robert Hodgins, William Kentridge and Diane Victor – form part of the current group exhibition, I am because you are: A search for Ubuntu with permission to dream, at the Standard Bank Gallery in Johannesburg (2 February – 31 March). Curated by Usha Seejarim, the exhibition – which features 52 artworks from the bank’s corporate collection – is presented against the backdrop of South Africa’s current socio-political context, and invites and encourages viewers to contemplate the notion of Ubuntu in the context of South Africa’s contemporary conditions.

Various Artists At Standard Bank Gallery

From Sitting to Selfie: 300 years of South African Portraits at Standard Bank Gallery in Johannesburg maps the long tradition of portraiture and its changing use and function in society. The exhibition, which opened to the public 25 June 2014, features work by Candice Breitz, Willem Boshoff, Hasan & Husain Essop, David Goldblatt, Haroon Gunn-Salie, Robert Hodgins, William Kentridge, Brett Murray, Walter Oltmann, Mikhael Subotzky, Minnette Vári and Diane Victor amongst others. From 19th century oil paintings to 21st century video installations, the exhibition raises many interesting questions about how and why people make portraits of themselves and others, and how the reasons for this have changed over time. The exhibition runs until 6 September 2014.
