Don't miss the Factor X Discourse exhibition hosted by Galerie Noko and NMMU
Fancy seeing the best of contemporary African art, but have no idea of where to go? Galerie Noko, situated in Richmond Hill, Port Elizabeth and the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University, is hosting the Factor X Discourse exhibition – a Contemporary African Art exhibition from the 27th of May to the 27th of June.
Contemporary African Art and artists have, in recent times, produced specific discourses within the art world, which has become very popular within the art industry across the world, as the most popular global arts and culture is currently focused on the African continent.
The Factor X Discourse exhibition will provide a “critical insight into the multi-faceted visual art media and medium across platforms by artists in Africa.”
“This exhibition is conceptualized to present critical works that examines the newly developing field of contemporary African art within the modernist and postmodernist experience and therefore contributes significantly to the intellectual dialogue on world art and the discourse on internationalism and multiculturalism in the arts and communities,” Usen Obot, owner of Galerie Noko said.
This initiative allows communities to interact and communicate through their diverse work, as well as to address the narratives of xenophobia, racism, exclusion as well as acceptance within African communities.
The exhibition will feature various well-known artists from South Africa and other African countries, and will coincide with the University as well as Africa Week celebrations across the country.
These artists include:
Andrew Tshabangu – South Africa,
Joel Mpah Door – Cameroon,
Mathias Chirombo – Zimbabwe,
Ndidi Emefiele – Nigeria,
Jacob Teteh - Ashong – Ghana,
Asanda Kupa – South Africa,
David Tsoka – South Africa,
Gerry Nubia – Nigeria,
Duke Asidere – Nigeria, and
Banele Njadayi – South Africa.
A panel discussion will open on Thursday the 11th of June 2015 at 5pm. The speakers will include Professor Ruth Simbao - from Rhodes University; Michael Barry - from the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU) and Molemo Moiloa, the CEO of Viaula Arts Network of South Africa.
