STUDIO NXUMALO IN ASSOCIATION WITH GALLERY 2
Artist and curator Musa N. Nxumalo imagines Johannesburg based Gallery 2 as a “Cloud” where he “Uploads” a collection of ideas as explored by predominantly Johannesburg-based emerging, mid-career and established artists.
In this case, the gallery functions as a metaphorical cloud where the audience can browse an anthology of artworks and ideas that may or may not have been inspired or deterred by the emergence of Covid-19 and the ultimate hard lockdown that the world experienced since March 2020.
Nxumalo curates this exhibition with an intention to bring to the fore ideas that are explored by the featured artists as keys and signs that could potentially inspire us to continue to explore life with enthusiasm for imagination as exhibited by the featured artists, an alternative to pundits that flood our everyday media with damning rhetoric about the current and future of our existence. Nxumalo foregrounds the featured artists as thought leaders and alternative voices of inspiration to help us imagine and acknowledge our “New Normal”.
