Without Masks

"Why, Sir, you find no man, at all intellectual, who is willing to leave London. No, Sir, when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford."
Samuel Johnson

He might as well have been talking about Johannesburg. So, when you've assembled the largest collection of Afro-Cuban contemporary art in history, where do you first exhibit it? Where else, but at the JAG in the heart of Johannesburg. I'm not a big fan of contemporary art, but from what I've seen and heard, this might be worth a look.
