Exhibition: Fragile Histories

Cape Town

Keith Dietrich recently told the media that "there are so many histories in this country and the perspective depends on who recorded the histories.

At the Cape there was a cosmopolitan mishmash consisting of people from India, China, Indonesia and Europe. There were troublemakers, slaves and governors …” His new exhibition gives voice to many of them. Aptly titled Fragile Histories, it explores the tensions and textures of early colonial encounters.
