Nicholas Hlobo Unyukelo

Nicholas Hlobo: 'Unyukelo'

Through July 7, 2019

In "Unyukelo" Hlobo responds to historic narratives of the American South to create a poetic and moving installation featuring large two-dimensional and sculptural works commissioned for the SCAD Museum of Art. Inspired by the evocative name of the city of Savannah — with echoes of the rolling fields of grass of the African savanna — Hlobo conceived a project rooted in the search for liberation and escape.
