Namibian Artists Exhibition

Exhibition opens - June the 5th at 2:00 pm - Closing 24th of July 2016

“NamibiArt” is a group exhibition of works by Namibian artists opening at Kapunda Community Gallery Inc. on June 5 and will be formally opened by William McGowan.  It is a collection of visual narratives that are expressed by more than eight Namibian artists in a wide range of media.  The exhibition was organized by Melanie Sarantou.
To quote her, “Roughly connected in webs of meaning, communities tend to organically shape in clusters as people live and improvise their existences from one moment to the next.  Communities’ histories, experiences and life narratives shape futures that are part of or indirectly connected to centres, which may also be shifting.  For many Namibians, especially those forging their lives in economic disadvantaged margins, shifting centres may mean political and perhaps social freedom, but the gnawing shackles of poverty continue to hold them back.  Art is a media that enables the shaping of identities, while it also serves as a tool to process relationships within communities.” Melanie is currently working as an arts worker with a remote Indigenous community in South Australia.
