New Work - Mixed Medium
Sam Nhlengethwa - Jazz and Blues at Night
Goodman Gallery is pleased to present Jazz and Blues at Night, a new series of mixed media paintings, drawings, prints and tapestry by Sam Nhlengethwa, paying homage to the musicians that have inspired him throughout his five decades-long artistic career.
Despite the artist's pioneering role in South African art, this marks Nhlengethwa's first solo exhibition in London. Prior to this, a major survey of the artist's work titled "Life, Jazz and Lots of Other Things" was hosted by SCAD Museum of Art, Savannah, Georgia in 2014, touring to SCAD and the Carter Center, Atlanta.
Nhlengethwa's work has also been seen in numerous Biennials from 8th Havana Biennial to 2013 Venice Biennale and more recently at the 2015 Beijing Biennial. This exhibition creates the opportunity for London audiences to discover the work of this influential artist.
