Wits Art Museum presents a major retrospective of the prolific 50-year career of Joburg-born artist Albert Adams (1929-2006). The collection includes drawings, paintings, and prints that highlight the emotionally charged themes that Adams tackled throughout his career, including international human rights abuses, human suffering and incarceration. While he spent the majority of his training and professional career in London, Adams was heavily influenced by his South African roots and frequently returned to depicting themes related to his country of birth. The exhibition is curated by Marilyn Martin and organised by the museum in collaboration with Adams’ life partner Edward Glennon and SMAC Gallery.
