NWU Main Gallery Art Exhibition: Igshaan Adams - When Dust Settles 

The NWU Main Art Gallery is proud to host the Standard Bank Young Artist of 2018, Igshaan Adams. Adams’s work consists of different materials weaved into one another. Working with a Muslim narratives and making references to his thoughts on growing up in a working middle class family, many of the floor vynils he uses serves as nostalgia.

Anyone visiting the exhibition has been in a home where these patterns are found. The layering of different textures and patterns also refer to Adams exploration of his identity and personal conflict between his religion, Islam and his sexuality (Gibson 2018).

 


NWU Botanical Garden Gallery Art Exhibition: DoYouKnowThese #5WOMENARTISTS?

Since 2016, the National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA) has been asking this question on social media each March during Women’s History Month using the hashtag #5WomenArtists. The campaign calls attention to the fact that women have not been treated equally in the art world, and today they remain dramatically underrepresented and undervalued in museums, galleries, and auction houses.

Female artists participating: Asemahle Ntlonti, Bulumko Mbete, Lebapalo Tsiki, Lebogang Motaung and Tebogo Maise
