Setting up shop

There is no shortage of exhibition spaces with new venues continuing to open. The Goodman Gallery has extended its reach from Johannesburg to Cape Town with a new gallery, designed by Jeremy Rose of Mashabane Rose Architects.

Goodman Gallery owner Linda Givon invited 10 artists to participate in the opening show on March 22 called Lift Off II. They included Goodman regulars Willie Bester, Norman Catherine, Kendell Geers, David Goldblatt, Robert Hodgins, William Kentridge, Sam Nhlengethwa, Zwelethu Mthethwa, Penny Siopis and Sue Williamson. (Lift Off I was held in Johannesburg in 1997.)
