Galerie NOKO opens ‘Dialogue Beyond Frontiers’ exhibition on Wednesday
Galerie NOKO situated on Russell Road, Port Elizabeth, along with the Arts and Culture Department, the International Office and the Centre for the Advancement of Non-racialism and Democracy (CANRAD) of the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University, will be opening the ‘Dialogue Beyond Frontiers’ exhibition, which will be featuring from the 25th of May until the 25th of June.
The ‘Dialogue Beyond Frontiers’ exhibition will be including artworks from the NMMU’s Human Rights collection, as well as creations from artists all over Africa. These artists are:
- South Africa: Senzo Shabangu, Turiya Magdlela and Daniel Clark.
- Tanzania: Cloud Chatanda, Cote d’Voire and Paul Sika.
- Ethiopia: Emanuel Tegene.
- Nigeria: Usen Obot and Yusuf Seidu.
- Zimbabwe: Gresham Tapiwe Nyaude.
"The exhibition seeks to further the discourse on the dissolution of boundaries, parameters seen and unseen which has presumably mitigated the consumption, evolution and growth of visual narratives from the African continent and the diaspora. These works are fuelled by experiences, beliefs, customs and conjectures by artists who work across various mediums,” Galerie NOKO owner, Usen Obot explained.
He added that the exhibition will also be having a panel discussion, featuring esteemed art industry practitioners which include Ismail Mohamed, the National Director of the National Arts Festival, Matthew Patridge, the Director of the Cape Town Art Fair, NMMU Lecturer, Nii Botchway, Head Lecturer at NMMU, Mary Duker as well as NMMU student Paolo Maneli.
