On Friday the 29th of September, artist in learning Tony Gum held her solo exhibition Ode To She at Christpher Moller gallery in Cape Town. The highly anticipated exhibition brought together a crowd of people with eclectic style. In true Tony Gum style, the dress code was either red or to pay homage to traditional African wear. As expected, attendees did not disappoint and we were happy to sneak in a few street style shots before joining the festivities.
If you weren’t able to attend, this is what you missed..
Ode To She pays homage to Tony Gum’s journey as an African woman and celebrates her cultural roots through the somewhat subverted gaze of technology and social media.
“I learnt through this work; I wanted to reiterate the power and representation of Xhosa women, acknowledging their multifaceted roles, complex experiences of self, family and society.
The exhibition will run until the 3rd of November 2017
