How Come, is an exhibition confronting the current prevalent issues of shared phobias. Inspired by the song, How Come by Youssou N’dour, the exhibition is responding to common, yet undesirable questions and situations that many people find themselves in. Questions are simple to ask yet the answers are hard to come by.
 
Howcome I am poor, Howcome I am single, Howcome I am sad, Howcome I have no child, Howcome we, Howcome they, Howcome you, Howcome howcome etc.
 
How come also is also sending a direct appeal to the future from the time preceding major political and economic shifts that people find themselves in. The exhibitions in Bulawayo continues to provide a coherent role that the arts play in history or the present it continues to seek the desire for a ‘liberator’. It explores the economic potential of learning to question knowledge systems inspired by historical narratives that contribute to the current political and economic situation where we endeavour to be as a people. We continue to be interested in different alignments of knowledge and power that enable contradictions and complications. Friday 31 March 2019 @ 1730hrs Guest Speaker, Butholezwe Kgosi Nyathi -Regional Director National Gallery of Zimbabwe in Bulawayo.

How Come will be part of Fri Day Late launched in April comprising of Open Studios, Live performance, and Food. Fri Day Late is hosted in partnership with Paper Bag,
