Social Stances – George Pemba & Robert Hodgins
1-31 July 2021
George Pemba and Robert Hodgins took up very different stances towards their society, the main source of inspiration for their art: Pemba, with a very humane attitude towards society, depicted a local, traditional culture and life, and Hodgins, a more satirical stance towards Western society, portraying an urban way of life. Strauss & Co is pleased to present the third in a series on ongoing exhibitions in which artists are paired to highlight certain synergies between their life and work – the first, in 2019, paired Louis Maqhubela and Douglas Portway, and the second, in 2020, Gladys Mgudlandlu and Maggie Laubser.
