AMANDLA OKUQALA (article first published : 2006-07-22)

Amandla Okuqala is a new exhibition coordinated by 2nd and 3rd Fine Art Durban University of Technology students with the assistance of the DUT Art Gallery Curator.

“Amandla Okuqala” means “first effort” and the group exhibition is headed by team leaders Armstrong Masondo and Busi Zulu. This team of developing artists have been supported and motivated by their mentor and lecturer, Jan Jordaan, who is Head of the Printmaking Department at DUT Fine Art as well as the Director of Art for Humanity, an organisation advocating in human rights using art as its primary working tool.

The exhibiting team comprises Yvette Dunn, Xolani Duma,Sandile Mkwanazi, Bongumusa Hlongwa, Mxolisi Sithole, Mlungisi Mlambo, Siyanda Makhathini, Sabelo Khumalo, Phumlani Hadebe, Phumzile Hadebe, Busi Zulu, Kelvin Mokaba, Armstrong Masondo, Thulani Cornet, Mondli Dlamini, Thabisile Ndlovu and Philani Khomo.

Amandla Okuqala presents works by a range of artists who share commonality in use of the medium printmaking and ceramics. However, these participating artists have strong individualistic presentation through concept and subject matter expressed in each of their artworks. They are inspired by a diversity of cultures and identity and, as South African artists, they wish to express their views on the issues surrounding them. They are willing to have their views heard and they believe that exhibiting their artworks at the DUT gallery would be a great opportunity to have their say through art.

Amandla Okuqala will be opened by Jan Jordaan on July 25 at 18h00 and the exhibition runs until August 4. More information from DUT Art Gallery on 031 204 2207 or email: nontobekon@dit.ac.za
