TUT Fine Arts staff exhibit at Berman Contemporary

Berman Contemporary will host a solo exhibition of the thought-provoking work of Kgaogelo Cow Mashilo (Mash), celebrated artist and Fibre Arts lecturer at TUT’s Department of Fine and Studio Arts, from 2 March. The solo exhibition is titled Re Gona.


A Sculptural Symphony, also featuring the work of Paballo Majela and Mellaney Roberts, technician and lecturer at the Department of Fine and Studio Arts, respectively, will run alongside the solo exhibition.

The opening of Re Gona and A Sculptural Symphony will take place on 2 March, from 11:00 to 16:00. The exhibition walkabouts will start with Cow Mash’s solo exhibition at 11:00 followed by A Sculptural Symphony at 11:30.


Cow Mash draws us into her lineage with her solo exhibition, Re Gona. The title, being the response to Le Kae (How are you?), translates to We are here. In Sepedi no one stands alone; people speak of themselves in the plural because every person represents their community.


Re Gona becomes Mash’s we-ness in her ancestral ties, support system and religious bonds.


The exhibition is curated by Els van Mourik and ends 14 April.


Berman Contemporary is situated at 223 Jan Smuts Avenue, Rosebank, Johannesburg.
