This groundbreaking exhibition tells the story of Artist Proof Studio,
which was conceived in Boston by Tufts/Museum School graduate Kim Berman in the 1980s and co-founded with artist Nhlanhla Xaba in Johannesburg in 1991. Over its twenty-one year history, this community-based printmaking studio has mirrored the transformations in South African society from the end-stages of Apartheid to a conception of artists as activist-citizens in a democratic society
The exhibition is guest curated by Pamela Allara, an expert in contemporary South African art who has published and lectured widely on Artist Proof Studio. She is an associate professor emerita of Brandeis University.
