On occasion of the current exhibition Everything is where it is expected, Nontsikelelo Mutiti hosts a conversation featuring artists and cultural producers Preston Thompson and Abigail Lucien, moderated by Camille Drummond.
Through a presentation format, the discussion will engage with themes around printmaking, design, and publishing practice, providing an opportunity for the cross-pollination of individual processes and a reflection on experimentation. With Everything is where it is expected providing a background for the conversation, Mutiti shares this platform with invited practitioners building on key values of her practice— collaboration, dialogue, and sharing. Publishing is foregrounded through this curated event as a communal experience or community practice. Mutiti’s interests in knowledge- and cultural-production is reflected in the design practice of Preston Thompson and the interdisciplinary approach to object making from Abigail Lucien. Rent a chair allows practitioners to present and discuss aspects of their practice that they are most excited and engaged with at this moment in their career.
