Michaelis Alumni, Nobukho Nqaba, is taking part in Regeneration3 which iswhich is currently in London as part of the Format festival, and was previously exhibited at Regeneration 3 in Museo Amparo in Mexico. Other exciting news is that Nqaba is taking part in Making & Unmaking, curated by Duro Olowu, in London together with some prominent names in the art world.
Bringing together over sixty international artists working in diverse media, this exhibition places antique West African textiles and Bauhaus tapestries amongst contemporary works and new commissions. Individually, the works address themes that include portraiture as well as representations of beauty, gender, sexuality, innocence and the body. Collectively, their coming together reveals a common thread that Olowu describes as a ‘process of personal ritual experienced by artists in creating their work’.
