We are happy collaborate with independent curators as we take curatorial practice in Bulawayo to another level by opening our exhibition spaces to present collaborations through workshops and exhibitions.   The exhibition is titled, Profile pic a very popular phenomena in this contemporary digital social media era. A profile picture is the image that represents a social media account in all its interactions across a platform. An ‘alter ego’ (another persona) is thus created and through peoples ability to edit and alter their images to recreate and re invent themselves and present themselves to the world.
