S03 E10 / Interview: 'Artists in Isolation' with Banele Khoza

--:--
In this episode, I chat with Banele Khoza about his artistic and curatorial practice. This is the final episode in a series on Unframed called "Artists in Isolation” which profiles South African artists during the lockdown period of the COVID-19 pandemic. As we, in South Africa enter Level 3 of lockdown, we end this series but will continue producing content that keeps the art community connected and inspired.

Banele Khoza (*1994) is a Swaziland-born and South African-based visual artist. He firstly enrolled at the London International School of Fashion in Johannesburg, but soon realized his passion was drawing. Khoza holds a BTechin Fine Arts from Tshwane University of Technology, Pretoria. In 2017 he won the prestigious Gerard Sekoto Award and with it a three-month residency at the CitéInternationale des Arts in Paris.

His solo exhibitions include Temporary Feelings at the Pretoria Art Museum (2016); Lonely Nights at Lizamore Gallery(2017) LOVE? at Smith Studio in Cape Town (2018). Khoza also headlined the solo exhibition titled LGBTQI+: Banele Khoza as part of the Curatorial Lab at Zeitz MOCAA (2018). In 2018 he curated A Letter to my 22 Year Old Self, a group show presented to launch his fundraising activities which will give grants to art students dealing with economic hardship at SA universities. In 2019 Khoza opened `'Seeking Love`' a museum touring show around South Africa and has been awarded the M&G 200 Young South Africans. Khoza is the co-curator with Nicole Siegenthaler of Art Joburg: Gallery Lab.

Enjoy listening to my conversation with Banele Khoza.
