Established in Johannesburg in 1966, the gallery works with artists who are at once contemporary, influential and strive to shift perspectives and engender social transformation. Founded during the era of apartheid, Goodman Gallery offered a non-discriminatory space when museums served the agenda of the autocratic government. Since 2008, under the directorship of Liza Essers, Goodman Gallery has expanded on this legacy, shifted its focus, and introduced numerous pivotal curatorial initiatives and partnerships. Essers has promoted a global outlook, while initiating unconventional interventions both within and outside of the traditional gallery space. The gallery represents artists who have shaped the landscape of contemporary art in southern Africa, while working with already eminent younger artists. Furthermore, the programme takes into account the experience of artists based both on the continent and within the Diaspora, as well as colonial era divides that have distanced sub-Saharan Africa from its northern counterparts. In five decades, the Goodman Gallery has played a vital role in forging change through artistic production and dialogue, shaping contemporary art within and beyond the continent.More
