Conversations We Do Not Have

Date: Thursday, May 21, 2015 to Friday, July 17, 2015

Venue: NWU Gallery

In this edition of the Conversations We Do Not Have exhibition series, my intention is to highlight voices lost, gained or contained. The Voices of Women (Amazwi) Collection has at its core a collective of women’s voices portrayed through text and embroidery. These narrations reflect the daily experiences that span the multiple discourses and events that shape our minds and our lives; stories that are also reflected upon in the narratives of our popular media. These works speak clearly and in an unconstrained personal manner that are mostly free of deliberate political opinion. They are stories told by women that reflect upon their deepest concerns. We should pay careful attention.
