Mawande Ka Zenzile: Udludlilali

Hundreds of independent art and museums spaces were forced to close due to the Corona-Crisis. In this series we are celebrating the fantastic artistic events that are right now sitting behind closed doors. Take a look at the solo exhibition by Mawande Ka Zenzile titled Udludlilali at Stevenson Cape Town.

The solo exhibition by Mawande Ka Zenzile titled Udludlilali, is his sixth with Stevenson. Udludlilali follows the artist’s solo focus at the Cape Town Art Fair in February, his presentation at the 2019 Venice Biennale as part of the South African Pavilion exhibition, titled The Stronger We Become, and his three-month residency at the Cité internationale des arts in Paris.
