The X_Posure Art Exhibition is a collaboration between the BKhz Studio and the Pretoria Art Museum. This contemporary art exhibition presents a mixture of photography and installation art by Tatenda Chidora, Oratile Papi Konopi, Lunga Ntila and Vuyolwethu Bukelwa Ndakisa. It is a body of work whose narratives stem from the personal to the public in their interrogation of the discomfort brought on by self-reflexivity on the part of the artist with regard to one's place in society. The BKhz Studio is a Johannesburg-based contemporary art gallery located in the Braamfontein cultural precinct. It was established by fine artist, Banele Khoza, a former education assistant at the Pretoria Art Museum. The studio was established with the aim to create a welcoming gallery space that entices the South African art public by recreating a pleasing aesthetic feature associated with the values of home in a studio setting. In a practical sense the studio provides an incubation space for emerging creative and visual artists by allowing for learning and experimental opportunities. The gallery mostly exhibits work by young contemporary artists and curated exhibitions featuring older, established artists where such occasions have been used to foster intergenerational dialogues and expertise exchanges between the artists through their diverse visual art mediums and experiences.
X_Posure Art Exhibition will be on show in the East Gallery 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, 29 March 2020.
