ABOUT THE FAIR
In 1512, enslaved Africans escape their captors to live in the South American jungle. In 1652, Dutchman Jan van Riebeeck lands two ships at the Cape of Good Hope. In 1956, Gordon Parks photographs children in Alabama, waiting to drink from a ‘colored only’ drinking fountain. In 2012, South African security forces kill 34 mine workers who are on strike.
During The Armory Show 2020, Galerie Ron Mandos proudly presents a group show with works by Kendell Geers (ZA, 1968), Remy Jungerman (SR, 1959), Mohau Modisakeng (ZA, 1986) and Esiri Erheriene-Essi (UK, 1982). The abovementioned events have formed a starting point for their works. They address topics including blackness, inequality, the African diaspora and the colonial history of the Netherlands, where the gallery is based.
We are very much looking forward to welcoming you in our booth, number 815 on Pier 94 in New York.
