Not the only South African at Frieze 2010

LONDON – The difference two years makes. In 2008 South Africans were everywhere in London. Robin Rhode, who was the subject of a large-scale solo show at the Hayward Gallery, was one of the artists displayed in the White Cube’s booth at the annual Frieze Art Fair. Other South Africans on offer included Angela Ferreira, Kendell Geers and William Kentridge. This year the only work by a South African was this editioned print by Kentridge, a processional scene drawing his Nose series, on offer by his New York dealer, Marian Goodman.
