Gabrielle Goliath exhibition opens at Standard Bank Gallery and Iziko South African National Gallery in October

Gabrielle Goliath’s powerful, transcendent and hauntingly immersive, sonic installation, This song is for…, created in collaboration with survivors of abuse and several musical ensembles, is on view at the Standard Bank Gallery (26 July – 14 September). The touring exhibition, which heads to Cape Town’s Iziko South African National Gallery (opening on 24 October), provides an opportunity for listeners to, in Goliath’s words, “effectively inhabit a contested space of traumatic recall – one in which the de-subjectifying violence of rape and its psychic afterlives become painfully entangled with personal and political claims to life, dignity, hope, faith, even joy.”
