You’re invited to the opening celebration of 21c Museum Hotel Louisville’s newest exhibition, Wim Botha: Still Life with Discontent on Friday, March 20. The evening starts with a cocktail reception at 6pm, followed by a public conversation with Wim Botha and Chief Curator Alice Gray Stites at 7pm.
Wim Botha: Still Life with Discontent is Botha’s first solo museum exhibition in the U.S., featuring works that span his career. Botha’s art is a study in contrasts: his pieces are simultaneously sacred yet profane, heavy yet light, and stable yet unsettled. Through his varying materials and subject matter, this South African artist explores weighty issues of history, status, power, and religion, referencing a range of art historical influences while resisting fixed interpretation.
