BKhz, situated in the heart of the Braamfontein creative hub functions as a gallery and studio space for artist Banele Khoza. The space is a consequence of the artists’ initial desire to have a space to create and represent himself from, but has since developed into a gallery that facilitates access into the art industry through exhibitions, gallery activations and a series of masterclasses. Banele Khoza describing his vision for the inception of the space mentions:
“I have been saving for the past five years. This is a God-given space. It is a place of love before it is a gallery or a studio. It is a home for myself and everyone who walks into it. People come first.”
The gallery space functions as a platform for emerging and established artists, curators and art practitioners. It is run by a team of art practitioners who are dedicated to activating the space through the curation of exciting and engaging exhibitions as well as informative public programming. Through, this exercise the BKhz team hope to promote a critical engagement within the arts and to contribute towards the development of a vibrant and sustainable art industry in South Africa.
