About

The Goodman Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new and rarely seen works by David Goldblatt. The opening of the show will take place on Saturday 3rd September 2005. The gallery will have extended hours on this day, from 09h30 – 17h00. Please join us for a drink at noon.

David Goldblatt is renowned for his documentation of the progress of societal changes and how these impact on the landscape and South African communities. His body of work will consist of stark landscapes shot in the Northern Cape, the impact of AIDS in various communities as well as the increasing roadside memorial sites that one encounters when driving through several landscapes in South Africa. Goldblatt will also be exhibiting portrait photographs of municipal officials.

An established photographer Goldblatt has always interacted immensely with the subjects of his photographs. In a documentary (“On the Road”, Produced by Greg Marinovich) recently flighted on SABC, Goldblatt revisited people he photographed in the 70’s and spoke quite earnestly about these interactions reflecting that language has been the only barrier in communicating.

Goldblatt’s retrospective exhibtion opens in June 2005 at the Museum Kunst Palast, and he will also be having a show at the Galeria Elba Benitez in Madrid, Spain around the same time.

The exhibition closes on Saturday 1st October 2005.
