Opening of the Dineo Seshee Bopape exhibition – Join us at the ICA on Friday September 24 to celebrate the opening of our new exhibition Dineo Seshee Bopape: Ile aye, moya, there, ndokh… harmonic conversations… mm. The event will feature music by Michael Demps and WRIR’s DJ Graybeard, an offering by poet and speaker Bayo Akomolafe, and remarks by artist Dineo Seshee Bopape and curator Amber Esseiva. Refreshments and a cash bar will be available throughout the evening. Ile aye, moya, there, ndokh… harmonic conversations… mm is a solo exhibition by South African artist Dineo Seshee Bopape. The show’s title appeals to the elements – earth, wind, fire and water – invoked in various languages of West and Southern Africa, and features new works spanning video, sculpture, installation and animation. In Bopape’s words:
This exhibition pays homage to those who were taken away, to those who fought, to those who fled and to those who still seek refuge in the liminal spaces between captivity and illegal freedom.
