The previous lock-downs may have limited what our new Head of Culture Katrin Simon may have been able to see and experience since her arrival in Zimbabwe last August but the recent easing of restrictions have allowed her to finally make a number of visits to galleries and artist studios.
Katrin was happy to be able to visit Village unhu where she met with gallery director Georgina Maxim and exhibiting artist Evans Mutenga 🎨 pictured here in an artistic pose 😉
She was also able to visit the inspiring work space and grounds of renowned sculpture Dominic Benhura and admire his beautiful springstone dancers.
The First Floor Gallery Harare was also among her stops where she attended a recent artist opening.

Independent contemporary art gallery First Floor Gallery Harare is an independent, international, contemporary artist run gallery.

Founded in December 2009, the gallery is dedicated to supporting the professional and career development of the emerging generation of contemporary Zimbabwean artists locally and internationally through education, experimentation, artist exchange as well as audience and market development to ensure a sustainable future for career artists.

Grace Nyahangare's debut solo Hatikanganwe Asi Tinopora (We don’t forget but we heal) is built on personal experience of pain and growth, the exhibition, does not revel in self-indulgence of spoon-fed suffering. It is rather a cinematically addressed landscape of memories and reflections on experiences which left an indelible mark in Nyahangare’s life.

A huge thank you to everyone that came to the opening last Friday.

Last month, we learned with great sadness about the sudden passing of Cuban artist .
David was an amazing artist and a friend to everyone at our gallery, always eager to support, help, with good humour and excellent ci**rs.
In November 2018, First Floor Gallery Harare, hosted “The Secret Garden” a major exhibition of David’s work. The Secret Garden, was a series of wall works, transforming global statistics on the cost of violence into beautifully designed paintings of pot plants. Knowing something about David’s personal history, it is difficult not to think that his work like him was about maintaining the extraordinary cognitive dissonance of knowing the horrors of life and maintaining a commitment to joy.
He developed the concept further with another major exhibition at the titled "In the point of view". When he was leaving with his family for London after their 3 year stay in Zimbabwe, he donated a number of trestle tables and art materials that are still being used for our children’s art classes. Our love goes out to Catherine and Benjamin and to all family and friends. ❤️🌻

We are thrilled to announce that Troy Makaza has been selected together with Moffat Takadiwa, Gillian Roselli, Victor Nyakuru, Kombo Chapfika and Sekai Machache to be part of the team of artists representing the Zimbabwe national Pavillon at the 60th Venice Biennale to be curated by Fadzai Muchemwa and commissioned by the National Gallery of Zimbabwe in 2024.

Congratulations to all 🇿🇼🎊


We are thrilled to announce the appointment of Miriro Mwandiambira as our new Assistant Curator.

Mwandiambira has a long-standing association with First Floor Gallery Harare, having commenced her career with us as a painter and sculptor, after completing studies at the National Gallery of Zimbabwe Visual Art Studio. Over the past decade, her practice evolved to include installation, sound work, video and performance and research-based projects, which was consolidated by taking part in RAW Academy in 2018 Dakar, under the mentorship of Tracey Rose.

In 2019 Miriro won a scholarship to undertake a Masters of Art in Public Spheres at édhea, Switzerland, which she completed com laude in 2021. Mwandiambira positions herself as a social commentator and storyteller with an unapologetically female-centric perspective, both as an African woman in the local and globalised context. As part of her role at FFGH, she will work on developing new exhibition projects with gallery artists as well as international collaborations focused on extending gallery and artistic practices.

Last chance to see Gresham Tapiwa Nyaude's solo exhibition 'Ziva Munhu Wako' in Victoria Falls which comes down in the next few weeks.

"Ziva mhunu wako (know your person), is a tenet, which builds an interpretational layer in complement to ubuntu (I am because you are). Knowing your person, includes know thyself but builds into it a relational structure, which creates possibilities for multiple relationships and coexistences, as well as a quest for wisdom without sinking into cynicism and misanthropy."

8 days left to see Wycliffe Mundopa's solo exhibition Southern Guild in Cape Town. "Pachipamwe (We Meet Again)"
8 February - 20 April 2023

“Using the dichotomies of anger in beauty and beauty in the pain, Mundopa enables us to emerge from the dichotomy of looking and seeing. Not only do his mythologised but dramatically real subjects compel you to see them, they challenge you to question the way you look, moving between didactic and heroic as though that was a natural oscillation.”
