Art Exhibitions

Isambulo (Revelations)

The Henry George Gallery presents a first-in-Johannesburg showing of work by the “Amasosha” Art Movement. - A dynamic collective of 17 artists from Durban and surrounds that began in 2015.
 
"Amasosha" from isiZulu, is derived from the English word, 'soldiers”.  As - not only is the aim for these artists to boost each other’s skills - but also, to evoke qualities found in soldiers: self-reliance; hard work; bravery; unity and front-line combat (amongst others). As well as the sense of being on a mission.
 
This degree of focus is now paying off as the movement’s thriving with support and buy-in from various individuals and entities. And has as its base, the Ikomkhulu Art Space in Durban, which hosts exhibitions, film screenings and performances every Friday.
