MBABANE – Making lemonade out of lemons!

This is true for BKhz owned by Eswatini born artist Banele Khoza whose physical exhibitions have been closed to the public and instead put up online on 3D. Khoza revealed to the Entertainmnet Desk that his space had mostly been online-driven where he reached his clients on social media, email and WhatsApp. “In 2018 I realised the importance of 3D Virtual Tours as each exhibition became permanent for as long as you had the link. For access, anyone and everyone can have the delight of remaining informed. “Since not everyone is able to make it to our sites of activation, bringing them to my supporters has been a priority,” he added.


He said since they had done 3D tours for most of their shows they then came to the realisation that exhibitions could be made permanent for as long as visitors had the link. Since the implimentation of a lockdown in neighbouring South Africa due to the coronavirus pandemic, Khoza is part of the forward thinkers in as far as visual artists embrace 3D tour technology to maximise their geographical reach. ‘Blue Is the Warmest Colour’ is one of the latest group shows which he curated and installed behind closed doors at his Braamfontein Gallery in Johannesburg.

According to Khoza, the show includes both emerging and well established artists whom he also featured in his February show in Woodstock, Cape Town. Anyone who would like to view the exhibition can visit the link https://my.matterport.com/show/?m=w78276x5ce5. The 3D Virtual Tour is in collaboration with Houtlander and American Hardwood Export Council.
