Solo: Kamyar Bineshtaragh
Selected by Sean O’Toole, curator of the 2024 Solo section, Kamyar Bineshtarigh will show mixed-media abstract works from major series produced in recent years. Bineshtarigh’s practice speaks to O’Toole’s thematic focus on the limits and boundaries of contemporary painting – its “processes, materials and iconography, but also its history and ontological character as a distinct medium”. Booth will bring together his artworks ink on canvas knock-knock, Hafiz And Ghazal series, with layered paintings lifted from the walls of his studio. This presentation traces the artist’s long-term engagement with language, mark-making and abstraction as tools to examine structures of power and oppression.
Generations: Terrence Maluleke
Terrence Maluleke made his debut at the fair with a series of stylized paintings inspired by narrative landscape and imaginary allegory in rare examples of Rorke’s Drift artists such as Elna Xaba, Philda Mazozi, Dorothy Sibiya, Gordon Mbatha, Ephraim Zikubu and Elizabeth Mbatha. , An accomplished visual developer in the field of animated film, Maluleke takes a flat painterly language and vibrant approach to storytelling that blends interestingly with the tapestries and ceramics showcased by Ryan Bolt Antiques.
This new section of the fair inspires intergenerational conversations between 10 artists at different stages of their careers. According to curators Natasha Baker and Amogelang Maledu: “Generations encourages visitors to engage in a relational way of looking at the artists’ individual practices alongside their interactions across mediums and material cultures, as well as general conceptual engagements.”
