Promises and Lies: The ANC in Exile an exhibition of photographs by Laurie Spelham, curated by Dr Siona O’Connell will open on the 12th of May 2016 at the Michaelis Gallery.

Promises and Lies is an exhibition of photographs of the ANC from 1989-1990, a turning point in South African history. These photographs of the ANC during that period offer an opportunity to think about lives in exile, the growing chasm between the promise of freedom then, and the reality of a contemporary moment marked by crisis and failure.
