Description

Martin and Weinberg started the curatorial process by making preliminary selections from the UCT archive, the Iziko Sang collection and Rhona Dubow’s collection. Generally speaking, the exhibition comprises an overview of Dubow’s photographic oeuvre from 1971-2001 and includes new images, never before exhibited. There is a vast body of colour slides that reflects Dubow the traveller with an appetite to record and document the places he visited, and to absorb what the international art world had to offer. Weinberg developed a rolling slide show of some of these images for the exhibition. Display cases contain drawings that reveal other aspects of Dubow’s many talents and activities, e.g. architectural drawings from the archive of Revel Fox & Partners, drawings for projects and mobiles, as well as memorabilia and publications.

Jessica and Saul Dubow, Christopher Peter, Martin, Weinberg, interns Antonia Bamford and Daniël Geldenhuys have all made contributions to the catalogue, thereby adding depth and texture to the extraordinary legacy of Neville Dubow
