Kudzanai Chiurai

Zimbabwean 1981- 


Internationally acclaimed multi-disciplinary Zimbabwean artist and activist Kudzanai Chiurai studied Fine Art at the University of Pretoria in South Africa and now lives and works in Harare. His work deals with the political, economic and social conditions of contemporary life, as well as masculinity, violence, displacement and postcolonialism. Chiurai’s solo exhibitions include Communists and Hot Chicken Wings: The Birth of a New Nation (Goodman Gallery project space, Arts on Main, Johannesburg, 2010); The Harvest of Thorns (The Assylem Atelje, Johannesburg, 2012); and Front Page (Mallorca Landings, Spain, 2013). He was the winner of the second FNB Art Prize in 2012, and has participated in many group shows including Figures & Fictions: Contemporary South African Photography at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London in 2011; This is not Africa, This is Us, Part I, at the Kunsthal Rotterdam in 2014; and Art/Afrique, Le nouvel atelier at the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris in 2017. Chiurai’s ‘Conflict Resolution’ series was exhibited at documenta (13) in 2012 in Kassel, and his short film, Iyeza, was selected for the 2013 Sundance Film Festival in the USA.

His work is featured in public and private collections in South Africa and internationally, including the Iziko South African National Gallery, Cape Town; UNISA Art Gallery, Pretoria; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Artur Walther Collection, Germany; and the Pigozzi Collection, Italy.
