Description

A multimedia artist based in Johannesburg, Kemang Wa Lehulere is interested in the intersections of personal narrative and collective history, memory, and amnesia. His recent work engages themes of unearthing the past in South Africa and beyond. This performance accompanying Wa Lehulere's installation in Public Intimacy focuses on the figure of Nat Nakasa (1937-1965), a black South African anti-apartheid writer and journalist for Drum magazine who died suspiciously in an alleged suicide, falling from a building in New York City.
