Cape Town, 1 Argyle Street (cnr Albert Road)

WHATIFTHEWORLD was founded in 2008 and is now situated in a decommissioned synagogue in Woodstock, which forms part of Cape Town’s recent renewal of Edwardian industria. Originally the gallery identified a group of young contemporary Southern African artists whose practice was underpinned by both global and local contemporary art movements. These artists have, to a large degree, gone on to transform the South African art landscape. Using their social and personal identities they have twisted the previous generation’s resistance and conceptual based practice into something beyond merely protest conceptualism, embracing both materiality and humour.

Justin Rhodes (gallery director), Ashleigh McLean (gallery curator), Gallery Assistants: Mia Borman, Matthew Bradley, Tracey Muscat
