Kicking Dust Panel Discussion
Uncover artist Igshaan Adams' distinct approach to materiality at a live-streamed discussion between a panel of experts.
The conversation focuses on how the artist's choice of materials, and inventive and varied styles of weaving, lends itself to an exploration of identity, specifically in relation to race, religion and sexuality.
The Cape Town-based panellists include scholar Dr Ala Alhourani, curator Josh Ginsburg and academic and curator Dr Portia Malatjie, led by writer and cultural theorist Ashraf Jamal.
The event is held on National Youth Day in South Africa: a day commemorating the student-led Soweto Uprising of 1976. Tickets are free of charge to all students of any age, level and locality.
