An exhibition of new works by the Amashosha Art Movement, entitled Inkaba, opens at the Durban Art Gallery on December 2 where it runs until March 2, 2023.

“Inkaba is a Zulu word with two meanings. It can be an umbilicus or navel, which is a remnant of the umbilical cord that connects a baby to its mother before birth. The umbilical cord supplies oxygen and nutrition to the baby during pregnancy. It is cut and removed at birth and leaves a scar—the navel,” explains curator, Mthobisi Maphumulo.

The exhibition is curated by Mthobisi Maphumulo and features work by participating artists, Anelisiwe Maphumulo, Andile Maphumulo, Mthobisi Maphumulo, Lindani Maduna, Thembi Mthembu, Thalente Khomo, Lindelwa Msimang, Bongani Luthuli, Nhlanhla Chonco, Sihle Mthethwa, Mzamo Mlambo and Nhlakanipho Peace Ndimande.

The Amasosha Art Movement is a collective of multi-disciplinary artists from greater Durban. Their movement is emerging as a critical vehicle in the exploration, interrogation and collaboration of ideas. Amasosha is an isiZulu loan-word derived from the English word meaning “soldiers”.

The Durban Art Gallery is located on the second floor of City Hall, Anton Lembede Street, Central Durban. It is open from 09h00 to 15h30 during the week, and 09h00 to 12h00 on Saturdays.
