As of April this year, Kutlwano Monyai and Mbhoni Khosa have been working on a body of work that takes the ideas encountered in The Genesis II' Xhibition further. The envisaged body of work that consists of 26 art works sees the two artists contributing ten art works each and six collaborative works. While Khosa's graphics expand the narrative of Xitsonga traditional beliefs and practices, Monyai foregrounds the interpretation of dreams through her mixed media artwork with interposed mapmaking.
Kutlwano Monyai and Mbhoni Khosa, education assistants at the museum, competed for the art residency in a group of six people, and were nominated for the art residency at Kopanong Art Studio through an independent selection panel. They have emerged from the museum education and development programme having been involved with guided tours at the museum and the facilitation of art-making workshops for visiting groups. Their work impressed the panel in that it showed a wide breadth of content and adeptness with the art media in which they specialise.
Kopanong Art Studio Residency Programme 2019 will be on show in the Henry Preiss Hall of the Pretoria Art Museum on Tuesdays to Sundays from 10:00 to 16:00, with guided tours arranged by appointment. The exhibition will be on show until Sunday, 2 February 2020.
