Art Exhibitions

Hata

20 July 2019

Goodman Gallery is pleased to present Hata, a new series of paintings and drawings by Misheck Masamvu, his third solo exhibition with the gallery. 
 
Taken from Shona, the word Hata commonly refers to a cushion used to soften the load atop one’s head. In a broader sense, Hata stands as a coping mechanism for the burdens we bear, be they literal objects or our thoughts, emotions and ideas. 
 
For this exhibition, Masamvu uses painting as a hata-like device for processing our relationship to history. This position relies on thinking of the history we are burdened with as an opportunity for further education and growth. Drawing on personal tragedies, Masamvu looks at how he overcame these challenges in his life by turning to lessons gained from history. 
 
The exhibition is accompanied by a monograph, also titled Hata, edited by curator Gabi Ngcobo. The publication will be launched alongside a listening session between Ngcobo and Masamvu at 11H30 on the day of the opening.
