Lionel Smit, in collaboration with Artlife in Los Angeles presents the solo exhibition DIVIDE. DIVIDE is Lionel Smit’s first solo show on the West Coast of USA and includes some of his latest pieces from his Cape Town based studio. A selection of work will also be traveling from his solo exhibition OBSCURA, that was recently held at the Museum of Contemporary Art in North Miami.
DIVIDE forms part of Smit’s ongoing conversation about identity, drawing from the racial diversity in South Africa and probing how we are shaped–and placed–by our identity. Smit homes in on an ethnic group with a rich, complex and often fraught history: the Cape Malay people of Cape Town.
The exhibition runs from 27 September to 28 October 2018 showcasing his paintings, sculpture and silkscreens.
