The Jean Pigozzi African Art Collection

Esther Mahlangu 85, The Melrose Gallery, Johannesburg, South Africa

from 11/11/2020 to 20/12/2020

The Melrose Gallery is pleased to announce 'Esther Mahlangu 85', a powerful solo exhibition in celebration of Dr Esther Mahlangu's 85th birthday on the 11th November 2020. Dr Mahlangu is the globally acclaimed visual artist and much loved cultural ambassador of the Ndebele Nation.

Despite Dr Mahlangu's global standing, this is surprisingly one of a handful of solo exhibitions to take place in South Africa, over her illustrious career that spans more than 7 decades.

'Esther Mahlangu 85' will therefore present South Africans and international collectors with a rare opportunity to experience such a wide body of works displayed together in one space. The exhibition, curated by Ruzy Rusike, launches online on this viewing room on 11 November and in The Melrose Gallery on the evening of 19 November and runs until 20 December 2020.
