panel discussion

Material Matters in Paintings at the End of an Era is a panel discussion with Anthony Bumhira, Hayden Proud & Jessica Hemmings held at Zeitz MOCAA in Cape Town, South Africa moderated by Erica de Greef, Senior Curator, Fashion. The conversation will focus on the museum’s current exhibition of contemporary Zimbabwean painting Five Bhobh where many of the exhibiting artists use textiles such as blankets, doilies, undergarments from second-hand clothing markets, discarded hessian from tobacco farmers and tenting material in their work.
