After the Thrill is Gone: Fashion, Politics, and Culture in Contemporary South African Art

September 12-November 12, 2017
(Closed October 6-16, 2017, for the College's Fall Break.)

Sussel Gallery and the Burton D. Morgan Gallery

After the Thrill is Gone:  Fashion, Politics, and Culture in Contemporary South African Art features fourteen artists who read the political climate of post-apartheid South Africa through fashion’s embrace of the “new.” The artists in After the Thrill is Gone use fashion to shape narratives of representation, identity, memory, xenophobia, violence in the domestic sphere, and allegories of nationalism. Both individually and collectively, these artists locate fashion as a political language and reinterpret the historical terrain of South Africa after the thrill of apartheid’s end is gone.
