Narrative Vessels - An exhibition of artefacts from the Permanent collection

This exhibition traces a narrative that begins with the domestic containers and progressively moves away from the private intimate object to an art that spills into the public domain. Vessels that have a past, a present and an infinitely variable future, these pieces provide both realities and fictions.


 “Cont.    Empo”- meaning Continuous Empowerment of  young contemporary    artists. It is a tale of four young artists and    how they are    overcoming obstacles of    hard economy in Zimbabwe    and the world in general. Cont. Empo is a voice of     the youth with different backgrounds but with one motive.
