Peter Clarke: Wind Blowing on the Cape Flats
LONDON • Iniva (Institute of International Visual Arts) • Ongoing
|In partnership with the South African National Gallery (Iziko Museums of South Africa), Iniva presents Wind Blowing on the Cape Flats, a major retrospective and first substantial exhibition in the UK of the South African artist, Peter Clarke (b. 1929). |
Wind Blowing on the Cape Flats honors Clarke's life, work and contribution to art over sixty years and tells the story of an artist who is part of a lost generation, a voice that has been largely unheard in Europe.
Although largely self-taught, Clarke was encouraged by taking informal art classes and studying European masters that he saw reproduced in books - including Picasso, and the South African modernist Gerard Sekoto (the first black artist to be represented in a South African public collection). His work constitutes a subtle critique of apartheid and its social consequences as well as more recently, aspects of the ‘new' South Africa.
Curated by Tessa Jackson (Iniva) and Riason Naidoo (ISANG).
