JIAS has contracted Africartoons to exhibit ‘30 Years of Stacey Stent’ in the JIAS Cartoon Room.

The curator, John Curtis of Africartoons, has written: ‘Stacey Stent is one of South Africa’s pre-eminent editorial cartoonists, and one of the few who have covered the shenanigans of both the apartheid regime and the democratic dispensation that followed it.

‘Her free-flowing lines and clever, witty dialogue are very accessible, and her trademark satire can be simultaneously light and biting – but it is always thought-provoking.

‘A committed champion of the voiceless and dispossessed, she follows a progressive line, and is a feminist. These sympathies are reflected in her work. Stent is South Africa’s first and only woman professional editorial cartoonist.’
