The AVA is a non-profit, membership-based art organisation whose aim is the advancement of visual art.
In the Long gallery, Elske Henderson continues her solo, "Lost Expectancies", an exhibition of feminist activism, in particular exposing the silence surrounding miscarriage.
In the Mezzanine gallery, first-time exhibitors Songezo Zantsi and Ayabonga Machata proudly honour their heritage, traditions, triumphs and challenges, in a two-person exhibition titled "Identity".
In the New Media room, we see the result of a month-long experimental writing game, cadavre exquis (exquisite corpse), embarked on by Ayesha Mukadam and Graham Geiger-Krige. The resulting stream-of-consciousness poem inspired the film installation "Between Time".
And last but not least, in the Main gallery, Tangeni Kambudu's exhibition "More meaningful in your absence" deals with contradicting feelings of exclusion vs equality. His series of meticulously etched mirrors are designed to reflect how we see ourselves and how we relate to one another.
All exhibitions run until 15 April 2021 and can also be viewed online at https://www.ava.co.za/current-exhibitions/category/Current%20Exhibition
