A richly illustrated collection combining moving history with stunning contemporary art, South African Art Now is the first book to document the role of art and artists in the evolution of today’s post-apartheid South Africa. Artist and author Sue Williamson explores five decades of South African art, from early political art in the 1960s (during the apartheid years) to the thought-provoking works that grabbed the international art market’s interest a generation later. Featuring the work of 90 artists and more than 500 color images, and with an insightful foreword from Nobel laureate Nadine Gordimer, South African Art Now is a valuable resource for collectors, curators, and contemporary art enthusiasts.
