Kudzanai Chiurai features on a group exhibition in Chicago

Work from Chiurai’s We Live in Silence series features on the Museum of Contemporary Photography’s group exhibition, In Their Own Form, in Chicago (12 April – 8 July). Curated by Sheridan Tucker Anderson, the exhibition looks at ideas closely related to the Afro-futurist movement and the movement’s connection – as an escape from tumultuous pasts and presents across the world – to people’s experiences within global diasporas. According to the curator, ‘[t]hrough a lens of Afro-futurist aesthetics, In Their Own Form seeks to illuminate the myriad of ways blackness might hope to exist without the imposition of oppression, racism and stereotypes ever-present in Western cultures’.

The exhibition features 14 artists who are using fashion, textile, and clothing to comment on social and political landscapes since 1994, to consider a feeling of lacking social change within the country, and to imagine new alternatives for South Africa’s future.
