We have a small contemporary conceptual art gallery where we work with member artists to develop new bodies of work. Established in 2016 with the vision of providing a space for knowledge exchange, experimenting, engagement and dialogue within the visual arts sector in Zambia. Modzi Arts Gallery aims to grow the multidisciplinary contemporary art and cultural scene and make it more visible within and outside the Zambian society. We show work that has been in planning from 6month to 1 year period, where we ask artists that we work with to research on Zambian art history context and to begin to use these narratives as a reference point; To serve as an umbrella Modzi Art targets, a dynamic art-, culture- and knowledge exchange without the constrictions of an academic corset. To achieve this, outstanding, upcoming national and international artists are invited to deal with contemporary conceptual questions of interest with reference to Zambian art history. Without the claim of providing answers, these artists use varying media of art (painting, photography, installation, video, sculpture, performance) to formulate comments on these questions, pose new questions, raise awareness to other problems and excite contemplation on them.
Our main curator is our artistic director Julia but we usually take host to a curatorial team from people in and around Lusaka.
