Troy Makaza - Biennale di Venezia 2024

Troy Makaza will be representing the Zimbabwe Pavillion alongside Moffat Takadiwa, Sekai Machache, Kombo Chapfika and Gillian Rosselli
Troy Makaza (b. 1995, Harare) creates woven works from painted silicone strings, creating a threadlike spider web. 
His broader examination of the fluid and in-flux relationships between the sexes in contemporary Zimbabwe bound together powerful metaphors for social and intimate spaces, where traditional values and liberal attitudes are no longer assured. His works have been included in exhibitions at the Museum of Modern African Art al Maaden (MACAAL) in Marrakech, the Kunstlaboratorium in Norway, the Zeitz MoCAA in Cape Town, and the National Gallery of Zimbabwe.
The 2024 Pavillion of Zimbabwe Commissioner will be the Director of the National Gallery of Zimbabwe, Raphael Chikuwa, and the exhibition will be curated by Fadzai Veronica Muchemwa.
The 60th edition of the Biennale di Venezia is curated by Adriano Pedrosa, Director of the Museu de Arte de São Paulo, and will take place from 20 April to 24 November 2024.
