Materiality, Storytelling, and Grand Narratives in Contemporary African Art

Dexter Wimberly (Independent Curator) in conversation with Billie Zangewa (Artist). Billie Zangewa is an internationally celebrated Johannesburg based Malawian artist who works with fabrics, mostly silk, to create intricate tapestries. By way of her rich, elaborate silk ‘paintings’, Zangewa celebrates black femininity, self-empowerment and the importance of storytelling.
