JOHANNESBURG – The virtual opening of the exhibition “Ngoma II: Cosmology in African Modernities” at the Johannesburg Art Gallery takes place on Sunday 2021.

The exhibition seeks to explore the interrelationship between art, belief systems and anti-colonial struggles.

“Art in the African context has always been woven into the fabric of both spirituality and ordinary everyday existence. Modernity and colonialism have not only changed the African way of life, but also the way we understand the cosmos and our place within it. Art is not only a decorative enterprise, but it is also a means of knowing and a means of representing what is beyond the daily discourse ”, one reads in a release from the Johannesburg Art Gallery.

The event includes a soundtrack by famous musician Neo Muyanga and a live performance by Medumo Ya Afrika with Masello Motana.

The event takes place from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
