Radio Juxtapoz, ep 123: The Dadaism of Dada Khanyisa
Okay, okay, okay, Cape Town-based artist Dada Khanyisa isn't a Dadaist, so maybe the title here is misleading. But they are having a solo show currently at the Johannesburg Art Gallery and they are part of the roster of the great Stevenson gallery and they are making work that is both politically astute but also about this ideas of what they say is "going out culture, but also going in culture." So even if it's not Dadaism, it's Dada-ism.
On this episode of the Radio Juxtapoz podcast, we sit down with the Cape Town-based artist about imagination versus reality and the trickiness of the balance, tolerance training and the continuing emerging career of one of the brightest stars of South African art today.
The Radio Juxtapoz podcast is hosted by FIFTH WALL TV's Doug Gillen and Juxtapoz editor, Evan Pricco. Episode 123 was recorded in October 2023 in Margate and Cape Town. Follow us on @radiojuxtapoz
