Description

COLLAGE, COLOUR, AND COMPLICATING BLACKNESS

LAWRENCE LEMAOANA is known for his embroidered kanga cloths, which humorously appropriate the language of South African politics and mass media. In conversation ARUNA D’SOUZA (art writer), they will discuss consciousness and community, as well as the centrality of text, fabric and craft in their work.
