Currently on view at Honor Fraser Gallery, Los Angeles is “Pax Kaffraria,” a solo exhibition by Meleko Mokgosi featuring the final chapters of his three-year long history painting project. The exhibition will also include a series of charcoal drawings of iconic breeds of southern African dogs and text-based paintings interrogating recent exhibitions of African Art and imagery of Africa. “Pax Kaffraria” as a whole articulates the incommensurable aspects of the post-colonial condition through strategic structuring of moments and fragments that exceed traditional structures of authority and representation. These unmoored narrative pulses are local and particular, a counterpoint to the metanarratives of nationalism.
“Pax Kaffraria” is on view through May 31, 2014.
