In 2012 SMAC Art Gallery presented PAINT I, the first in a series of exhibitions looking at contemporary South African painting from 2000 onwards. Although general and diverse, this exhibition reflected an interconnectedness and a sense of cohesiveness which allows for conversations and debate surrounding the existence of a fresh zeitgeist and approach to painting – in a new era. For Miart 2014, SMAC Art Gallery showcases a cross-section of contemporary South African painting, featuring eight acclaimed and recognised painters; Jake Aikman, Kate Gottgens, Georgina Gratrix, Anton Karstel, Johann Louw, Colbert Mashile, Themba Shibase and Simon Stone. This presentation continues on from the PAINT series and spans two generations of painters whose work collectively represent the issues, concerns and trends which characterise new South African painting.
