According to Meleko Mokgosi the only way to investigate the history of Southern African liberation movements from Western hegemony is paradoxically via the decidedly complicit Western genre of History Painting. In his view, rather than attack the problem from the outside, it is better to come at it from within. In Comrade II, an exhibition part of a brilliant two gallery show at Jack Shainman, Mokgosi judiciously employs History Painting’s main covenant of truth via images by proving that the truth cannot be investigated by ignoring the perpetrator’s means of representation. Through October 22.
