 A richly illustrated collection combining moving history with stunning contemporary art, South African Art Now is the first book to document the role of art and artists in the evolution of today's post-apartheid South Africa. Artist and author Sue Williamson explores five decades of South African art, from early political art in the 1960s (during the apartheid years) to the thought-provoking works that grabbed the international art market’s interest a generation later. Featuring the work of 90 artists and more than 500 color images, and with an insightful foreword from Nobel laureate Nadine Gordimer, South African Art Now is a valuable resource for collectors, curators, and contemporary art enthusiasts.

  This book covers forty years of art history in South Africa, from the dark years of apartheid, which saw the rise of resistance art, to the long-awaited achievement of freedom in 1994, to the present-day struggles for reconciliation and transformation.

Described by international curator Okwui Enwezor as "one of the most dynamic and vigorous spaces of artistic practice," contemporary South African art is an exciting, emerging scene that is attracting the attention of international museums, curators, and collectors today.

South African Art Now documents, through in-depth essays and stunning full-color photographs, the remarkable work of nearly one hundred South African artists working in every medium from painting, sculpture, and video to cutting-edge performance art. This lush volume includes the impressive work of art world stars such as William Kentridge and Marlene Dumas; newly prominent artists such as Berni Searle, Robin Rhode, and Mustafa Maluka; and exciting newcomers still unknown outside their own country, but clearly marked for success.
