The Point of Order (TPO) is an on-going project implemented by the Division of Visual Arts (DIVA) that functions as an experimental project space managed under the auspices of the exhibitions programme of the Division at the Wits School of Arts (WSOA).
Located beyond the boom, just outside the University grounds, TPO allows for the engagement of works/projects being made at DIVA in a publically accessible exhibition space. The programme covers student or staff led initiatives, and hosts residents, exhibitions, events and project exchanges with local and international individuals and institutions, with a focus on emerging artists from the postgraduate Fine Arts programme as well as upcoming undergraduate students within the DIVA.
The Point of Order invites you to the launch of The Yoni Book, at the African Feminisms Conference 2019
The Yoni Book is the second iteration of The Two Talking Yonis – a solo exhibition of Reshma Chhiba’s work, curated by Nontobeko Ntombela – which took place in 2013 in Johannesburg at Constitution Hill (Women’s Jail), Room Gallery and Projects, and Kalashnikovv Gallery.
In this book Chhiba and Ntombela reflect on their working process, collaboration and collective thinking towards what has become an allied curatorial experience of the exhibition and The Yoni Book. The book is thus an extension of the work produced for the exhibition and at the same time an exploration of Chhiba’s practice more broadly. With five essays, by Reshma Chhiba, Sharlene Khan, Tracy Murinik, Devarakshanam (Betty) Govinden and Nontobeko Ntombela, the book becomes an expanded conversation that looks at the different aspects of Chhiba’s work and, consistent with its grounding in an ongoing discussion, is also a meeting place for creative and academic writing.
