FIRST THURSDAY: Ringa - exhibition of taal



Umuzi, in partnership with AFROPUNK presents RINGA! Exhibition of Taal.

Language is a fundamental human phenomenon, that is used both to divide and unite. RINGA! explores the concept of language in Southern Africa as a complex singularity, rather than languages as separate entities.

On 2 November, as a part of the Cape Town First Thursday programme, a group of Umuzi young artists, partnering with Sandile Radebe and Pule kaJanolintshi, will use Isibheqe, an indigenous writing system for Southern African languages, as a medium to convey an everyday, pan-lingual experience.

“We are seeing Language as a flowing river, branching off, and rejoining itself, all the time, forming surprising connections”
- Pule

See language like you’ve never seen it before.
