Sandile Goje. Meeting of Two Cultures. 1993

Sandile Goje Meeting of Two Cultures 1993

  • Not on view

Goje made this print on the subject of reconciliation a year before South Africa's first democratic election, in which Nelson Mandela, the African National Congress candidate, was elected president. Both its title and imagery reflect the artist's optimism about reconciliation between black and white South Africans, represented by a handshake between a circular thatched Xhosa home and a Western-style suburban brick house.
