District Six Museum and Framer Framed, a platform for arts & culture in Amsterdam, present a unique collaborative exhibition: Re(as)sisting Narratives, curated by Chandra Frank. The exhibition explores lingering legacies of colonialism between South Africa and the Netherlands through engaging with contemporary artists from both countries. Re(as)sisting Narratives is the result of a two-year project between three partners from both The Netherlands and South Africa: Framer Framed (NL), District Six Museum (SA) and Centre for Curating the Archive (SA).
The exhibition is on show in The Netherlands and South Africa, partly overlapping: at Framer Framed (Amsterdam) from 28 August – 27 November, at District Six Museum (Cape Town) from 23 November – 13 December.
Participating artists explore broader themes such as race, gender, memory, trauma and spatiality in their work. At District Six Museum, the exhibition features Burning Museum, Toni Stuart & Kurt Orderson and Judith Westerveld. At Framer Framed, the exhibition also includes Mohau Modisakeng, Athi-Patra Ruga and Mary Sibande. The artists in this show are connected by a shared interest in evoking and readdressing that what is left behind, that what is (in)visible, and a visual fusion of reality and fantasy to create new ways of being.
