Leeto: A Sam Nhlengethwa Print Retrospective

11 June 2019 - 17 August 2019

Leeto is a seTswana/seSotho word for ‘journey’ and, as the word suggests, the exhibition explores the ongoing artistic footsteps of renowned artist Sam Nhlengethwa. Through the underpinning theme of jazz, this survey of the artist’s printmaking includes works produced between 1978 and 2018. 
 
The underground township jazz community played an early influence on Nhlengethwa’s work; Nhlengethwa’s brother was a jazz musician and he began collecting jazz records at the age of 17. The exhibition draws links between the fluid nature of jazz improvisation and Nhlengethwa’s study of an ever-changing community.
