"My Beautiful Home" / Comba Indlu Ngobuciko Exhibition & Competition Launch
Thu, Jul 16. 3:30PM - 6:30PM
National Gallery of Zimbabwe in Bulawayo 75 Main Street Bulawayo, Zimbabwe
The project, being run in the Matopos, aims to encourage and reward the practice of decorating huts in the traditional way using natural pigments such as ash, coal and soil…as a means of highlighting and maintaining the art and culture of the area.
The project will culminate in a prize-giving ceremony, with prizes being awarded for the best exterior and the best interior designs, in mid-September at the Amagugu Centre on the Kezi Road. All competitors will be invited and it will be an opportunity for a celebratory feast with traditional music and dance.
The July 16 launch of the project at the gallery will showcase the amazing painted huts and their artists which featured in the inaugural competition last year, in a series of stunning photographs by Dr. Andre Van Rooyen. The photographs will be on sale, the proceeds of which will go towards running the competition.
Alliance is the proud sponsor of this event.
