Rewriting History: Kemang Wa Lehulere’s History Will Break Your Heart

I recently wrote a review for Artthrob on this years Standard Bank Young Artist Kemang Wa Lehulere. Out of the many South African artists dealing with history, I have found Lehulere's work to be the most engaging.

"The continued re-examination of the still incomplete canon of artists who have not received the recognition they deserve remains urgent and this exhibition furthers the importance of Wa Lehulere’s work at this time. The perspicacious manner in which Lehulere converses with present and past, questioning memory and history, prompts participate in excavating all the layers of our history".
