Goddy Leye (1965 – 2011)
VANSA staff note with great sadness the passing of Camerounian artist Goddy Leye on the 18th of February 2011. Goddy participated in VANSA's 2009 Johannesburg Public Art Survivor project as a curator and mentor to a group of fifteen young South African and African artists and curators, and made an abdiding impression on everyone involved in that project. Goddy was an extraordinary individual and artist, producing work which has contributed to the ongoing definition and imagining of contemporary arts practice on the African continent. We extend our condolences to his family and friends in Cameroun and around the world.
