The New Church Museum, Cape Town, South Africa

Kudzanai Chiurai, Revelations V, 2011


Art historian and curator Rory Bester has selected works from the museum’s permanent collection and augmented these with loans that reflect on the patterns of repetition and recognition in turning over and overturning of art histories. 50/50 is a collation and juxtaposition of historical and contemporary works, all viewed through a responsive, documentary lens. As these repetitions and recognitions accumulate over time they come to bear on signifiers such as monuments, monumentality and iconoclasm, secrets and lies, the rise and fall of ideas, culture, cultivation, movement and mobility.
