Goodman Gallery to represent Pamela Phatsimo Sunstrum
Goodman Gallery is representing the Johannesburg-based Botswana artist Pamela Phatsimo Sunstrum. Through drawing and animation, Sunstrum draws on mythology, geology and theories of the nature of the universe to create narrative landscapes that appear simultaneously futuristic and ancient. This March Sunstrum is taking part in the “Conversations with Artists” series at the Philips Collection in Washington DC and will have a solo installation exhibited at the Maclaren Art Centre in Ontario.
In 2019 Sunstrum held a mid-career survey at the Contemporary Art Centre in Cincinnati Ohio, which is accompanied by her first monograph to be published by Radius Books. In addition, Sunstrum held solo exhibitions last year at Kunsthaus Zürich, The Nest in The Hague and at Zeitz MOCAA in Cape Town, among others. In August Sunstrum will hold her first solo exhibition with Goodman Gallery in Johannesburg.
Goodman Gallery holds the reputation as a pre-eminent art gallery on the African continent, platforming art that confronts entrenched power structures and champions social change. The gallery opened recently a permanent space in London in the historic Cork Street which brought exhibitions by Francis Bacon and Joan Miró to London for the first time. The gallery, located for many years in Johannesburg and Cape Town, has been pivotal in shaping contemporary South African art, bringing David Goldblatt, William Kentridge, David Koloane, Sam Nhlengethwa and Sue Williamson to the world’s attention for the first time during the apartheid era. Goodman Gallery’s expansion to London furthers this mission to confront dominant historical narratives and to contribute to contemporary art discourse and social repair.
