Galerie NOKO in partnership with Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University is proud to present the exhibition ‘Dialogue Beyond Frontiers’

The exhibition seeks to further the discourse on the dissolution of boundaries, parameters seen and unseen which has presumably mitigated the consumption, evolution and growth of visual narratives from the African continent and the diaspora. These works are fuelled by experiences, beliefs, customs and conjectures by artists who work across various mediums.
