Special feature - South Africa
Following unprecedented interest in the art coming out of South Africa, ArtReview presents a 24-page country special, including an essay by artist and art historian Sue Williamson and an interview with William Kentridge focusing on the artist’s recent performative works. We also asked artists to show us around their cities: Nicholas Hlobo is on the ground in Johannesburg, while Julia Rosa Clark leads us through Cape Town.
An extended reviews section, including the last word on the British Art Show 7, and a Michelangelo Pistoletto intervention in the pages of a freshly redesigned ArtReview.
