Creating Dialogues Through Art
Iforoworo Exhibition attendees.

The Iforoworo exhibition was opened at the Killie Campbell Collections Museum on 4 June 2018.

Iforoworo is an exhibition on the exploration of the themes of dialogue and communication through objects and paintings found by artists within the community of KwaZulu-Natal.

The exhibition set out to establish how objects and paintings can be used by an artist in critically dealing with a variety of phenomenon. The exhibition questions the use of propaganda by many Western states in their dealings with African countries from a post-colonial and a decolonial perspective.

Attended by an audience of more than 60 art lovers, lecturers, DUT Deputy Vice-Chancellor: Engagement, Professor Sibusiso Moyo who declared the exhibition open, Master artist Mr Nkosinathi Kanyile, Rev. Dr Delysia Bowler Timm and UKZN students.
