Referencing the eleven official languages of South Africa, “Eleven Voices” aims to incite a conversation about cultural struggle, memory and identity among contemporary artists. Curators Kim Yantis, of the Deering Estate, and Rosie Gordon-Wallace, founder and curator of Diaspora Vibe Cultural Arts Incubator, have selected works from artists and collectors that reflect thematic inspirations from South African art and culture.
Eleven Voices features the works of emerging and renowned South African and international artists, many of which are on special loan from the collections of Diaspora Vibe (DVCAI), the Petra Mason Collection of South African Art, and Kathryn and Dan Mikesell of the Fountainhead Residency and are on view in Miami for the first time. Exhibited South African artists include: Nicolas Hlobo, Anton Kannemeyer, Anja Marais, Judith Mason, Claudette Schreuders, and Rowan Smith.
