Kudzanai Chiurai – Paintings from the Radical Archive

End Date: 31/07/2020

Goodman Gallery is pleased to present a solo presentation of works by Kudzanai Chiurai, titled ‘Paintings from the Radical Archive’.This selection of works, spanning a decade of practice, attests to the artist’s acute awareness of the aftermaths of colonial histories which is inscribed in his works alongside imagined narratives.Chiurai’s practice attempts to disrupt what the artist refers to as ?colonial futures? by creating ?counter-memories? within his images to contest dominant colonial narratives.The title of the exhibition refers to Chiurai?s most recent body of work – a pastiche and homage to posters created and distributed during Zimbabwe’s turbulent 1970s period, which were generated with the intention to incite political action.
