On Thursday evening, 2 August 2018 we welcomed many of you to the exhibition launch of our latest Artist in Residence, Jabu Nadia Newman.
Jabu Nadia Newman is an artist who works through the mediums of photography and film. Using an agenda of pushing intersectional feminism her work is largely based on the different and complex identities of South African womxn.
A photographic and video exhibition that looks at questions of coloured identity, and the African identities that were given up by coloured individuals in order to survive or live in certain areas.
Told through the image and voice of her grandmother Edith MacQuene, captured by her lens, her goal was to get a deeper understanding of her family’s history; one that results in a surname change, coloured assimilation and more.
