'Love Story II' 2019 (Lucinda Mudge)

War of the Roses: Painter Raél Jero Salley uses flowers to threads together otherwise disparate themes and narratives in this exhibition. By creating cohesion through floral motifs, the artist invites viewers to attune themselves to that which is liminal, marginal or forgotten. Details: The exhibition takes place until December 13 at Gallery Momo, 52 7th Avenue, Parktown North, Johannesburg.

There’s Glitter in My Soup! Through this new series of self portraits Steven Cohen extends his three-decade long performance practice. There’s Glitter in My Soup portrays the face as an external feature that is also inhabited by a human consciousness.

Caras: This solo exhibition by Nelly Guambe, which includes installations and drawing, is a constellation of visages on paper. Its title, Caras, translates to “faces” in Portuguese and the work was sparked by the photojournalism in the wake of Cyclone Idai earlier this year. Guambe draws from the unity in abjection seen in the pictures to comment on the current state of humanity. Details: The exhibition opens on November 9 at Stevenson gallery, 46 7th Avenue.
