How do we begin to challenge and puzzle out the myriad misconceptions regarding notions of gender, race, religion or profession in South Africa? A new group exhibition curated by MaCA ArT Studio’s Thina Minya seeks to prompt dialogue around this very topic.
Opening 29 April at Victoria Yards and running until 27 May, Misconceptions is a group exhibition featuring selected artists working across the realms of painting, sculpture, photography and more.
‘This is a deeply personal and intimate group show featuring a diverse group of artists who challenge and confront misconceptions through their artistic practices. This exhibition… is an invitation for audiences to engage with the works that aim to spur dialogue and challenge misconceptions about identity, female body, success/achievement, race, gender, professions and religion.’Thina Minya
Misconceptions takes place at Victoria Yards Studio 1E, 16 Viljoen Street, Lorentzville, Johannesburg. Participating artists are Thina Minya, Zana Masombuka, Sarah Walmsley, Nomonde Kananda, Themba Minya and Hendrick Kgosana.
