Centre d'Art Contemporain Genève
10, rue des Vieux-Grenadiers
February 23–May 9, 1999

A man in blue jeans, his torso bare, holds a microphone and strikes a pose in front of the black leather sofa. His head is cropped from the image. True Confessions: My Life as a Disco Queen is the title of this 1998 photograph by Moshekwa Langa, a young South African artist who currently resides in Amsterdam. At twenty-three years of age, this “symbol for the new South Africa” has already exhibited in four international biennials and now garners his first solo museum show, a 5000-square-foot installation that will include photographs, videos, large-scale drawings, and paintings. The catalogue features essays by curator Paolo Colombo and Elizabeth Janus. Feb. 23–May 9; travel venues to be announced.
