From the Press Release: “The Museum has extended its major exhibition of photographs by David Goldblatt. For those interested in photography, the Company’s Garden is certainly the place to be this Sunday because in addition to Goldblatt’s outstanding Kith Kin & Khaya exhibition, for free at the Jewish Museum, there are two terrific photography exhibitions on next door at the National Gallery where major collections of Ernest Cole and Roger Ballen’s works are on display.
The Jewish museum is also offering its audio guide to the David Goldblatt exhibition for free! David Goldblatt is South Africa’s most celebrated photographer and the only South African to have won the Hassalblad Award, often referred to as the Nobel Prize of Photography”. The exhibit, Kith, Kin & Khaya has been extremely popular; it drew large audience in New York City before opening at the South African Jewish Museum here it is attracting record crowds. All works in the Kith, Kin & Khaya exhibition are black and white gelatine silver prints and ere taken between 1948 and 2009. In addition to the free audio guides, there are free posters being distributed to visitors this Sunday! The Jewish Museum’s permanent exhibit on Jewish contributions in South African History and the museum’s collection of Japanese Netsuke, miniature sculptures, should also not be missed.
