Akris / ICA Boston

An Artisic Impression. Jim Shi. The Daily. 05.01.08.
excerpted text: 

"The partnership with the Swiss luxury fashion house [Akris] will commence with the exhibition Momentum 11: Nicholas Hlobo in July 2008 and continue through spring 2009. Hlobo's first solo U.S. exhibition, which runs from July 30 to October 26, features the works on paper, sculpture, and performances of the South African artist. His art deals with gender, ethnicity, and his South African heritage. Hlobo often adds further metaphorical layers by titling his works with idioms from his native language Xhosa, one of twelve national languages of his post-Apartheid homeland."
