Coming Home @ Menier Gallery

For the Children - Dumile Feni

For just four days the week after next, there’s a rare chance to see art from South Africa’s apartheid era in the show Coming Home: South African Art Repatriated by the Ifa Lethu Foundation. Art made by black artists, and artists who objected to the apartheid regime, was excluded from establishment art collecting at the time; as a result much of it found its way into collections overseas, and is only now being returned to South Africa through the efforts of organisations like Ifa Lethu. This show at the Menier Gallery is part of a world tour aiming to share this artistic heritage with a wider audience. 44 works will be on display from artists including Dumile Feni (pictured), Motshile wa Nthodi, David Mothabeng Phoshoko, Melissa Becker and Victor Gordon.
