The second edition of Goodman Gallery's South-South series of exhibitions that draw parallels between artists from the Global South whose work is situated within and beyond the afterlife of political revolution. Let Me Begin Again follows The Poetry in Between: South-South, the first edition in the series (2015) which focused on Brazil and South Africa. The show looks at cross-cultural influence and divergence between countries such as Cuba, Brazil, South Africa and Angola, as well as other regions such as Mozambique and Namibia, and features artists born in or living between these countries or in the diaspora.

Text in English, French and Portuguese. The catalogue is accompanied by a reader of text-based contributions by participating artists who are also writers, including Maria Thereza Alves, Grada Kilomba and Teresa Kutala Firmino.
