Week 1 of 2017

week 1AFRICAN GROWTH BY EDUARDO VILLA
This year, the National Gallery of Zimbabwe turns 60, celebrating this momentous occasion under the theme Brilliant. Shining. Forever!
Villa's work is representative of an idea that was first set in motion over eight decades ago; the establishment of a Museum of Art in Africa. Such was the beginning of the National Gallery of Zimbabwe's journey. African Growth, as self

explanatory as it is, consists steel lengths melded to create a quadropedal structure that gravitates upwards. The elements of potential and thriving are prevalent as the strength of the material and the smooth texture present the suggestion of a fluid movement in this implied progression; a union of many to become one omnipotent form.
As the Gallery celebrates its Silver Jubilee; strength, progress, direction and the vast potential that remains are core to the year's events.
