EDSON CHAGAS FOUND NOT TAKEN / TIPO PASSE
11 Nov 2014 – 06 Feb 2015
Johannesburg, South Africa
STEVENSON is a contemporary art gallery with spaces in Cape Town and Johannesburg, and is jointly owned by its directors. The gallery opened as Michael Stevenson in Cape Town in 2003, and subsequently partnered with David Brodie in Johannesburg in 2008. That same year the Cape Town gallery moved into its current premises in Woodstock, and in November 2010 the Johannesburg space relocated to Juta Street, Braamfontein.
The gallery has an international exhibition programme with a particular focus on Africa. In addition to presenting gallery artists to a global audience, it has brought the work of artists like Francis Alÿs, Rineke Dijkstra, Thomas Hirschhorn, Glenn Ligon and Walid Raad to South Africa, often for the first time.
A cornerstone of Stevenson is its active publication programme that includes catalogues for many of its exhibitions and artists. Because of its location, art fairs are particularly important to the gallery: this year, Stevenson will participate in Frieze New York, Frieze London, Paris Photo and Art Basel Miami Beach.
