It has been a wonderful journey where we met new people, received new ideas and served more people adding up to the memories of 2017.

Introducing Tamu Nkiwane, born 1990, lives and works in London, United Kingdom. Tamu is a visiting research resident artist who will be conducting his research from the gallery studios until end of February. Tamu is interested in the topography of London heritage, identity and immateriality institutions. He positions himself into a socio-political awareness within these systems in order to create conversations that defect against their history’s.  he does not believe in the hierarchical approach of materials (or insist on ignoring them) but works within the context of the found, each inquiry is a phase of a larger conceptual idea. For more about Tamu please join us for a Bulawayo Conversations on Friday 19 January 2018 at 4 pm at the John Knight Cinema room.
