July – September 2015

The David Koloane Survey is a four-part project that includes an exhibition, book, animation and documentary film. Held together by a major retrospective exhibition, the survey extends into a animated film by Kolaone, an independently produced 52-minute documentary on the artist, and a 250-page book on his art, writing and cultural practice. By consolidating Koloane’s varied practice to date, extending his oeuvre into a new medium, and using a range of multimedia formats that offer distinctive insights into the artist and his work, The David Koloane Survey is a special celebration of one artist’s unique and dramatic contribution to South Africa’s cultural landscape, and a rare opportunity to explore the pedagogy of African art history and theory.
