CONTEMPORARY SOUTH AFRICA

For over a decade Thompson's Gallery has formed personal bonds with South Africa. Whilst there, Thompson's have been captivated by the breadth of artistic talent which we are now thrilled to present to the UK in our first exhibition of carefully selected South African artists.

'Contemporary South Africa' will explore a variety of media, techniques, and subject matter by some of the most inspiring contemporary artists living and working in South Africa today: Gail Catlin, Ruan Huisamen, Arend Louw, Thembalethu Manqunyana, Leon Müller, Hennie Niemann Jr., Jaco Roux, Anton Smit, René Snyman, and Louis Jansen van Vuuren.

Some are celebrated internationally, others are emerging figures, yet all artists are united by their creativity and shared nationhood. From bushland renderings to stylised portraits; challenging narrative scenes to large-scale bronzes, each artist's work is a world unto its own. Explore viewpoints and stories anew in the extraordinary selection of painting and sculpture presented in 'Contemporary South Africa' at Thompson's Gallery London.

5% of the gallery profits of the exhibition will be donated to Ubuntu Pathways.

"Ubuntu Pathways is an extraordinary and deserving non-profit organization that provides an integrated support system of health, education, and social supporting the township of Gqeberha, South Africa (previously known as Port Elizabeth). I was first introduced to the work of the organisation through a great friend, and I could not think of a better time to bring awareness to the organisation." Megan Thompson
