An African in China
Following the success of his solo exhibition at the Worldart gallery in Cape Town in November 2010, Ayanda Mabulu was invited by the Chenshia Art Foundation to travel to China. Besides the opportunity to meet and engage with local artists and a studio to work in, this exchange program also makes provision for a solo exhibition at the Chenshia Museum in the city of Wuhan. With a population of more than nine million people, Wuhan is the most populous city in Central China. It has existed for more than 3000 years and has long been renowned as a center for the arts and intellectual studies.
Mabulu left South Africa in April 2011 and his solo exhibition will open on 30 June 2011.
