The Fourth Brundyn Talks featuring Nomusa Makhubu takes place at BRUNDYN+
Brundyn Talks is a series of monthly talks held at the gallery’s video room. The talks are a platform for the public to engage with interdisciplinary discourse presented by artists, curators, academics, literary scholars, musicians and filmmakers to name but a few. The forth talk will be held by Nomusa Makhubu and considers how the positioning of Nollywood as interventionist artistic practice that subverts the division between art and popular culture could shift our thinking about what constitutes art and creative practice in Africa.

The Space Act of 2014, a performance piece takes place at Greatmore Studios
The performance sees two individuals from separate racial groups attempting to coexist in the same space but also leaving their mark on the space. Their coexistence would rely on the tolerance of one another and the resolutions that manifest from the crossing of paths that will take place during the course of the performance.
