Imbacu: Art from the Inside/Outside

This exhibition focuses on artists who were directly and indirectly affected by ‘exile’, both inside and outside of South Africa. Some left due to Apartheid, while others remained internal exiles working within the country. Many went abroad in pursuit of developing their artistic careers.

Stephen Bantu Biko, a founder of the Black Consciousness Movement, died at the hands of the security police in 1977. The 30th anniversary of his death is a point of departure for this exhibition. ‘Imbacu: Art from the Inside/Outside’ features works by Colin Richards, Jane Alexander, Dumile Feni, Ernest Cole and Ronald Harrison.
