S02 E08 / Talk: 'On David Koloane' with Thembinkosi Goniwe & Justin Davy

This episode is another recorded talk from the art fair week in September of this year, 2019. It was recorded at Art Joburg and is a conversation about the great and influential David Koloane who passed away at the age of 81 in June this year. I was so happy to hear that this talk was happening at Art Joburg, as I was planning an episode remembering the life and work of David Koloane. Both speakers, art historian and curator Thembinkosi Goniwe and Goodman gallery curator Justin Davy, worked intimately with David in the last few months of his life, pulling together his prolific and profound body of work for a major retrospective exhibition. Fortunately, David was able to see the first incarnation of the exhibition at Iziko National Gallery in Cape Town in June this year but sadly would not live to see its second incarnation at the Standard Bank Gallery in Johannesburg which opened just last week and runs until 6 December.

Thank you to Art Joburg for allowing me to record this talk and to publish it on Unframed, and to Thembinkosi and Justin for an insightful and poignant tribute to David Koloane.
