The KZNSA Gallery in Glenwood is hosting SCENORAMA.

After 10 months of growing and changing at the JavettUP, SCENORAMA has travelled to eThekwini where works will be presented in their ‘complete’ form until June 4, 2023.

This is a collaborative platform initiated for artistic research and experimentation, allowing a ground for shared networks of experiences in Africa and the Diaspora. The exhibition is accompanied by extensive public programming. Further activations include a free critical writing workshop - details will be published in the coming days.

eThekwini-based artist Nindya Bucktowar has been invited to join SCENORAMA for this iteration of the project, alongside:


Amanda Mushate, (ZIM)

Luana Vitra (BR),

Manyaku Mashilo (SA),

Nolan Oswald Dennis (SA),

Oscar Murillo (COL/UK),

Paulo Nazareth (BR),

Simnikiwe Buhlungu (SA/NL) & Tessa Mars (HAT/NL) in collaboration,

Thierry Oussou (BEN/NL)

This project is made possible through the assistance, partnerships and collaborations with the Frequencies Institute and Oscar Murillo Studio, Stevenson Gallery, Insite/ Commonplaces, First Floor Gallery, the National Arts Council, Goethe Institut, Sao Paulo/Johannesburg and Village Unhu.

SCENORAMA is curated by Javett-UP Curatorial Director Gabi Ngcobo assisted by Gillian Fleischmann and the Javett-UP Curatorial team.
