Mu­seum Of The Rev­o­lu­tion

STEVEN­SON Cape Town presents Mu­seum Of The Rev­o­lu­tion by Guy Til­lim, who won the 2017 Henri CartierBres­son Award for this new body of work. Over the past four years Til­lim has been pho­tograph­ing the streets of African cities in­clud­ing Jo­han­nes­burg, Dur­ban, Ma­puto, Ac­cra and Dar es Salaam. In the Mu­seum of the Rev­o­lu­tion there is a panoramic paint­ing pro­duced by North Korean artists de­pict­ing the lib­er­a­tion of the cap­i­tal from Por­tuguese colo­nial rule. It il­lus­trates the rhetoric of a rev­o­lu­tion as the leader and fol­low­ers pa­rade through the streets and av­enues, laid out with grandeur by the colo­nial pow­ers. Th­ese streets func­tion as silent wit­nesses to the po­lit­i­cal, eco­nomic and so­cial shifts of power and be­come a mu­seum of the revo­lu­tions that have taken place in African coun­tries over the past 65 years. Gallery hours 9am5pm, Buchanan Build­ing, Wood­stock
