Mixed media photographic wall piece
Arranged in loosely chronological order, each of the 16 galleries on this floor explores an individual topic. A gallery may be devoted to an artist, a specific medium or discipline, a particular place in a moment in time, or a shared creative idea. These presentations are conceived by teams of curators from all fields and at all levels of seniority collaborating closely to share expertise and viewpoints. An ongoing program of frequent reinstallation will feature a wide range of artworks in new combinations—a reminder that countless ideas and histories can be explored through the Museum’s rich collection.

Sue Williamson uses installation, photography and video. She is part of the pioneering generation of South African artists who began working in the 1970s on the social change of apartheid South Africa.
In this first solo exhibition in France of Sue Williamson, Galerie Dominique Fiat is showing a array of work representative of the devastating effect on South Africans. This body of work, covering several decades of her work, focuses on issues relating to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, slavery, and immigration.
