Event Description

Design is the Personality of an Idea

We are all deluded. In the most dangerous ways, the most beautiful ways and the most banal and benign ways we all exist in a world of our own design, our own creation, our own filter. Built with our beliefs, our histories, our traumas, our consumption, our interactions, our societies, our habits, our opportunities and dreams, we design our own reality. Art is an expression of our reality, and design is the personality of our ideas.

The artists brought together here use diverse media – film, fashion, paint, photography, digital collage, and sound – to show the diversity and complexity of each of their worldviews: complete, distinct, nuanced and fantastical. They design and manifest their own distinct realities. The intention is to leave the viewer with no one thing to say about African female artists. The more you see, the less you know.
