Enjoy mimosas at these Joburg galleries during their special exhibitions on 14.09.19

10h00 Kudzanai Chiurai Vinyl Library in response to Carrie Mae Weems' show at Goodman Gallery.

10h30 for 11h00, Brett Rubin’s Hugh Masekela Photographic tribute will be brought to life with a live jazz performance, and panel discussion led by Percy Mabandu at Everard Read Circa.

11h00 Stevenson’s Sinazo Chiya and Dineo Diphofa will host a walkabout and open discussion on Meleko Mokgosi’s newest body of work, contextualising it within the artist’s Democratic Intuition project and highlighting its particular art historical concerns.

12h00 Gareth Nyandoro launches his new publication during his solo exhibition at SMAC.

12h00 Gallery MOMO will host a Pan-African listening session played on vinyl by Nombuso Mathibela. The session is an exploration of continental becoming, through music as a space for the expression of African problems, hopes, desires and joy. We bring to you healing songs, chants and melodies from the continent of Africa and diaspora as one response to sonic kinship and solidarity in the climate of epistemic, quiet, murderous violence against our own in South Africa. To remind the forgetful the countless ways in which the African continent stood as a life-line in our darkest moments.

Kalashnikovv Gallery will also be open on Saturday.
