Frances J Goodman studio tour
8 September 2023
Frances Goodman is a multi-disciplinary artist based in Johannesburg, South Africa, whose prolific career spans over twenty five years. Her use of quotidian materials of the beauty and fashion industrial complex — sequins, acrylic nails, and false eyelashes, amongst others — draws attention to the ways that possibilities of female identity are narrowed, constrained and experienced through the prism of consumption, aspiration, desire and anxiety, whilst also celebrating their use as tools of empowerment and a means of forging identity. Her humorous, wry and disquieting works play at the intersection of surface glamour and delight and the underlying anxiety that this commodification of beauty and its reflective values creates.

Collection tour of Anglo American
144 Oxford Rd, Rosebank
8 September 2023
The Anglo American art and object collection is a combination of art collected over several decades through four different companies: Anglo American, de Beers Group, Anglo American Platinum and Kumba Iron Ore.
The collection comprises of 3600 works, with around 1000 pieces in the collection on display at the newly commissioned Rosebank offices. Although vast, the collection experienced an acquisition hiatus from the early 2000s until 2021 creating a significant gap in the collection’s representation of contemporary art. The collection now has a dedicated curator, Megan Scott, tasked with its cataloguing and digitisation, opening an exciting new chapter which will see the gradual procurement of significant works that reflect our contemporary South African and African art world.
