Celebrate Women's Day at The KZNSA Gallery, together with Art for Humanity, on Thursday 09 August 2018 from 13h00. All are welcome to attend a Masterclass with artist Khanyisile Mbongwa.
Khanyisile Mbongwa is a Gugulethu-born independent curator based in Cape Town. In 2006 she was amongst the founding members of the artist collective Gugulective.
Her work has since allowed her to travel locally and internationally Germany, Spain, Pakistan, Scotland, New York, Switzerland, Belgium, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Just to mention a few of Mbongwa’s works and awards: In 2014 she interned at GIPCA under the supervision of Jay Pather, curated the PreLIFE talks and assisted with the general running of Life Art Festival. In 2014 she won the Africa Centre - Artist In Residency Laureate and took up residency at JIWAR in Spain in 2015. *Entry is free and all are welcome. Complimentary drink provided.
"Infiltrate" is a live art installation incorporating an on-going body of work, entitled "Others", by photographic artist Jerome Stoffels, in collaboration with dance artist, Lorin Sookool. “Others” was born from contemplation of the (mis)representation around coloured people, whereas “Infiltrate" seeks to actively (re)position ourselves within society and its political structures - whether implied or imposed.
This pop up performance first occurred outside the KZNSA Arts Gallery in Durban.
We look forward to the growth of each project and are open to the addition of other narratives. It’s up to us share our own stories ✊🏽 #ColouredConversation
