Territories Between Us

Curated by Iziko Curator of Contemporary Art Tšhegofatšo Mabaso, Territories Between Us features artworks from the Iziko South African National Gallery’s permanent collection in conversation with artistic interventions and artworks from without the collection – inviting visitors to challenge the notion of contemporary art collections, while using the collection as a platform to think through various contemporaneous concerns.

Considering how collections negotiate questions of representation, access and visibility, the exhibition delves into various subjectivities to point to the many ways our existences are territorialised by structures – both visible and invisible. In engaging with artworks that move between disciplines and modes of working, and which represent these various subjectivities – Territories Between Us attempts to inch away from a ‘counterstance’ and instead seeks to explore a restored existence.

Territories Between Us is on exhibition at the Iziko South African National Gallery until Saturday, 30 October 2021.
