Residents treated to literary fair


POLOKWANE – Lekganyane said the event was a success despite the challenges brought about by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

He added that only an abridged version of the traditional programme of the fair was staged, because they were uncertain whether a stricter lockdown, that does not allow events to be held, would have been imposed at the time of the event.

The annual event saw local artists participate in creative writing and visual arts workshops, as well as talk shows.

The community was treated to the Feminism Ya Mang Touring visual art exhibition, curated by the Goethe Institute South Africa and represented by Masechaba Moloi and Samantha Modisenyane at the lower level of the Polokwane Art Museum.

“We also had the touring exhibition featuring an array of artistically gifted visual artists from all over the country and for the Polokwane edition, four young local visual artists were considered.”

Mokgabudi Letsoalo, art curator at the museum, said the fair adopted feminism as a theme to focus on this year. “As one of the key players in the fair, the Polokwane Art Museum curated a solo art exhibition of the works of one of the top artists from Limpopo, Avhashoni Mainganye. The Feminism Ya Mang Touring exhibition also features young and promising artists from the province. The exhibition challenges local definitions, interpretations and representations of what feminism is in the African context.”
