Panel discussion: Art and creativity in the city

Published 15 April 2024 in News

On Friday April 12, Asisebenze Art Atelier's gallery played host its first panel discussion. This event formed part of the first of the DECONSTRUCTED Series of programming of month-long contemporary African Art exhibitions by our resident studio artists. 

The three-person panel consisting of the featured artist, Sifiso Mkhabela, the exhibition's curator, Nolan Stevens, and renowned multidisciplinary artist and lecturer at the University of Johannesburg, Marc Edwards, all sort to unpack this topic. With each panelist  having different life experiences and varying interactions with the city of Johannesburg.

The variety in age, culture and even race resulted in the conversation being dynamic, unexpected, challenging and at often times supportive and encouraging.
