Assemblage is pleased to present an exhibition conceived by its 2014/15 studio bursary artists to mark the end of their year-long bursary period.
Khehla Chepape Makgato
have created artworks that engage with current politics in South Africa.
In March 2015, a protest campaign began for the removal of a statue of Cecil Rhodes at the UCT campus, which in turn led to a wider movement to "decolonise" education across South Africa. In response to the #RhodesMustFall movement and similar protests that were sparked around the country, this exhibition speaks about the politics of heritage, identity, and representation - issues that concern not only South Africa, but the world as a whole.
The Exhibition took place on Thursday 28 May at 6pm at Kalashnikovv Gallery, Braamfontein.
These artists have been on a year-long studio bursary at the Assemblage Studios funded by The African Arts Trust. http://www.theafricanartstrust.org/
