Join us for a Zoom talk as we celebrate the life and work of one South Africa's pioneering modern sculptors, Sydney Kumalo, ahead of our Modern & Contemporary Art Auction In Cape Town on 29 & 30 September 2021. The sale includes two landmark Kumalo sculptures to come to market for some time, A Study for Mythological Rider, and Large Seated Woman.
Kumalo, who began his career as a student at Rorke's Drift, was born in Sophiatown and raised in Soweto with a deep love of Zulu culture and lore. This convergence of traditional and modern African cultures helped shape the myths that inform the meaning and form of his art.
Panelists: Seasoned art collectors Gavin Watkins and Isaac Shongwe are joined by Aspire Art Auctions Senior Art Specialist, Percy Mabandu.
