press release

Opening Reception: Thursday, January 10, 6 - 8 pm

The Kyle Kauffman Gallery is pleased to commence the new year with Regeneration, a group show of contemporary South African art. The exhibition will include work by the artists William Kentridge, Marlene Dumas, Nontsikelelo ‘Lolo’ Veleko, Esther Mahlangu, Jane Alexander, Wayne Barker, Willie Bester, Conrad Botes, Norman Catherine, Paul du Toit, Humzah Goolam, and Dan Halter.

These artists represent the latest generation of artists working in South Africa today. Regeneration brings to the forefront young artists, such as Halter and Veleko, whose fresh and unique aesthetic voices have expanded the narrative of 20th century African art. Moreover, the exhibition includes new acquisitions and the most recent work by established artists such as William Kentridge, which demonstrate the way contemporary masters are forever reinvigorating and reinventing their practices. Regeneration also reinforces the gallery’s commitment to introducing new voices to the New York art scene. We are showing for the first time works by Paul du Toit, Norman Catherine, and Humzah Goolam. The resulting body of work is impressive and multifaceted, embracing a range of media, genres, and thematic explorations. Please join us to kick off the new year with Regeneration.

Regeneration marks the start to an exciting year at the Gallery featuring upcoming solo shows by the artists Esther Mahlangu, Willie Bester, Paul Du Toit, Conrad Botes, and Dan Halter.

The Kyle Kauffman Gallery, the newest addition to the red-hot art scene in New York City, is located between Chelsea and Hells Kitchen. The focus of this space is to exhibit the highest quality artwork by both established and emerging artists from Africa and from the African Diaspora. By doing so, the Kyle Kauffman Gallery provides a unique perspective on the vast and ever-emerging contemporary art scene by presenting new and exciting examples of the cultural and aesthetic production of Africa, the area of the world almost completely neglected by most art galleries and cultural institutions.

Please join us at an opening reception on Thursday, January 10 from 6 – 8 pm.
