Goodman Gallery will preview new works by Zimbabwean artist Misheck Masamvu ahead of his forthcoming exhibition at the Johannesburg gallery. Installed in the 1:54 Lounge, Masamvu’s paintings Taxi (2015) and Bottoms Up (2015) are part of a new body of work by the artist destined to culminate in a solo exhibition entitled Still.
Established in Johannesburg in 1966, Goodman Gallery works with artists who are at once contemporary and influential, strive to shift perspectives and engender social transformation. In 2016, Goodman Gallery celebrates five decades of representing contemporary artists and shaping the field of art within and beyond the continent.
Misheck Masamvu studied at Atelier Delta in Harare and Kunst Akademie in Munich, Germany. His practice encompasses painting, drawing and sculpture. Masamvu’s works have been exhibited widely including at the 54th International Art Exhibition of the Venice Biennale in Italy – where he represented Zimbabwe, the Bienal de São Tomé e Príncipe in São Tomé and Principe; and Dak’Art, Biennale de l’Art Africain Contemporain.
