As Wilma Cruise recently observed in these pages, 'it is the convention of [international] curators to spin complex webs of curatorial intent.' I tried to spin such a web for a much more modest undertaking than that to which she alluded, namely Contra Mundi. Held at the Association for Visual Arts (AVA), in Cape Town from 31 May until 19 June, it showcased the work of younger Cape Town-based artists who were working in what I evasively described as a 'contemporary' mode of production. In many ways evasion was the order of the day for the exhibition.
