Nontsikelelo Mutiti : Everything is where is it expected
May 10-Jun 21 2019
- 29 days left
For Everything is where it is expected, Mutiti looks to the Hair Braiding Salon of the African diaspora as a communal space and meeting point - a place for discussion, hearsay, experimentation and visual spectacle, and one that can open up new paths for thinking about black histories and futures. Through prints, publications, artwork and objects, Mutiti adapts these spaces of beauty and knowledge production into a bookstore/gallery setting, investigating braiding technique as a process analogous to language-making and as a broader metaphor for identity, migration and global culture. Opening Reception: Fri, May 10, 6-8pm.
