As the world’s attention shifts to the fight against HIV and Aids, HIVSA and its online magazine, CHOMA will empower adolescents and young women to be the next HIV free generation. HIVSA is partnering with an up and coming curator, Zama Phakathi, to create an interactive art experience that communicates critical HIV and Aids issues to inspire positive change.
A Pop-up Experiential Art Exhibition will refocus the lens, taking a closer look at some of the issues that make South Africa the country most affected by HIV and Aids in the world. The exhibition will be open to explore from 25 November to 01 December 2014 at a shop between Jet and Smooch on the on the upper level of Southgate Mall, Johannesburg.
Phakathi (23) is the founder of Stop Sign Art Gallery at the Maboneng Precinct in Johannesburg, with a strong passion for the creative that tells stories words simply cannot convey on their own. Through the exhibition, Phakathi will bring the shocking statistics released by the *Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) to life in lead-up and support of World Aids Day.
