Anton Kannemeyer to Exhibit Work on Political Denial at the Stevenson Gallery

Alphabet of DemocracyAnton Kannemeyer’s work, alongside that of several other artists, will be featured in an exhibit he has curated for Johannesburg’s Stevenson gallery.

The exhibit, titled “The Loom of the Land”, is on until March 1 and features works by other notable artists such as Brett Murray, Peter Clarke, David Goldblatt, Deborah Poynton, Zanele Muholi and Johan Louw.

According to Percy Mabandu of City Press, the exhibit’s aim is to address landscapes of political turmoil and denial – each artist chooses a region or place and says something pertinent to current South African discourse about the area.

The comically infamous Anton Kannemeyer of Bitterkomix is extending his reach to curate.

He has put together an exhibition at Joburg’s Stevenson gallery exploring the landscape in contemporary South African art. It is titled Loom of the Land. Included in the spread of selected works are artists such as Brett Murray, Peter Clarke, David Goldblatt, Deborah Poynton, Zanele Muholi and Johan Louw.

There’s a catch though. Kannemeyer is not approaching his chosen theme in the regular polemical way
