Join us for a session led by Soapbox member Richard Gray exploring the work of artist Malangatana Ngwenya (b. Mozambique, 1936-2011). Malangatana's painting Untitled 1967 in Tate's collection is one of the few works by the artist held in a major public art museum.
Taking this as a starting point, the session will reflect on the many ways Malangatana's work has been positioned at different times both within and outside of Mozambique. Together we will discuss: how important is context and intention when we look at art?
What is Soapbox?
Soapbox is a peer-led session for people near or beyond the age of 60 to meet up and share views on life and art through topical discussion and debate. Each Soapbox meeting explores a range of art and artists from Tate's collection. Joining Soapbox will challenge your thinking and allow you to say what you feel in a supportive and friendly group.
In light of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, Soapbox will take place online until further notice.
