Ayanda Mabulu’s controversial painting Yakhal’inkomo – Black Man’s Cry – is back on display at the FNB Joburg Art Fair.

This after it was removed because organiser Ross Douglas believed it could unsettle sponsors, compromise the “creative economy” and cause embarrassment to government officials and politicians attached to some of the fair’s development projects.

Earlier, world-famous photographer David Goldblatt withdrew his work from the fair in solidarity with Mabulu.
