You, Me and Us, featuring Derrick Nxumalo and Mfezeko Gumada opens at the KZNSA Park Gallery on August 01, 2023, at 17h30 for 18h00.

Inspired by the shortest two-word poem by Mohammed Ali, Me, We, it emphasizes the importance of social interaction and prioritizing one's identity before pursuing shared objectives.

Gumada, an evidently self-curated artist, challenges social norms and critiques society by effortlessly being authentic to himself and his practice, While Nxumalo advocates for social issues through the use of graphic cityscapes and social activism. The paintings and drawings presented in this iteration sow the seed for an open intergenerational conversation between Nxumalo and Gumada and advocate for self-realization and intentional connection with others.

The exhibition runs until September 10, 2023.

The KZNSA Gallery is situated at 166 Bulwer Road, Glenwood, in Durban. More information on 031 277 1705 or cell 082 220 0368 or visit
