Curated by Prof Karel Nel Adjunct Curator Norval Foundation
28 April – 10 September 2018
Major retrospectives of the work of both Sydney Kumalo and Ezrom Legae will be shown alongside an exhibition of their friend and colleague Edoardo Villa. The Kumalo and Legae retrospectives, the first to be undertaken by any institution globally, draw together a considerable body of work: a series of bronzes and drawings chronicling their innovative artistic practices. The Villa exhibition focuses on the work he produced in the period of 1958-68 and is centred around his monumental sculpture Africa (1958). Serge Alain Nitegeka has been commissioned to create an immersive installation in Norval Foundation’s atrium, supported by the Claire and Edoardo Villa Will Trust.
