Solo Exhibition: February 6th, 2019 - May, 30th, 2019
“This exhibition confronts the stigma which prevents women from speaking out against the violation of their rights to decide how they want to exist in the world. It is our hope that One Thousand Voices is a declaration of women empowerment and instigates a conversation about the freedom of self-determination,” says curator Sakhi Gcina.
“Through One Thousand Voices we hope to provide a space where people will reflect on the survivor’s trauma and journey to find an alternative rite of passage. This exhibition attempts to acknowledge a multitude of stories, experiences and realities, particularly those of marginalised persons,” says curator Gcotyelwa Mashiqa.

‘Material Insanity’: February 26th, 2019 - September 23rd, 2019
Gathering more than 30 artists from the continent and its diaspora, Material Insanity explores the material and its symbolic significance in a plurality of dimensions and formal experiences. Through installations made from everyday objects or materials, the exhibition combines various discourses in the service of a new aesthetic.
With an immersive scenography created by the architect and artist Zineb Andress Arraki, the artworks of Material Insanity question the relationship between form and meaning, while sublimating the potentialities of the medium itself.
