Jo Ractliffe, Penny Siopis, Pieter Hugo, Steven Cohen, Nicholas Hlobo, Moshekwa Langa, Kemang Wa Lehulere, Zanele Muholi, Simphiwe Ndzube, Robin Rhode and Portia Zvavahera feature in Hacer Noche (Crossing Night), a series of exhibitions and residencies in Oaxaca focusing on southern Africa.
Portia Zvavahera features in The Assassination of Leon Trotsky, a group exhibition at David Lewis Gallery. The show marks the gallery’s 5th anniversary.
Portia Zvavahera is included in The Fabric of Felicity at the Garage Museum. Conceptualised as an international project showcasing clothes in art outside the context of the fashion industry, the exhibition seeks to 'undermine stereotypical notions of East and West, Global South and Global North'.
Portia Zvavahera is among 29 artists showing in Five Bhobh – Painting at the End of an Era, a survey of contemporary painting from Zimbabwe, at Zeitz MOCAA. The show looks at how artists have 'manipulated this medium as a way of subtly articulating complex issues, speaking in intricate, allegorical codes'.
Portia Zvavahera, Moshekwa Langa and Thierry Oussou have new works on the 10th Berlin Biennale, curated by Gabi Ngcobo, who proposes a conversation with artists 'who think and act beyond art as they confront the incessant anxieties perpetuated by a willful disregard for complex subjectivities'.
Portia Zvavahera features in The Contested Body at the Minneapolis Institute of Art. This group exhibition approaches the human body 'not as a fixed and stable entity, but rather as a fluid, contested site for the creation of meaning'.
Portia Zvavahera exibits new works at Marc Foxx gallery. I'm with You will be the artist's first solo exhibition in the United States.
A large-scale painting by Portia Zvavahera was included on Body Luggage: Migration of Gestures - 'body language as the signs carried on our backs' - curated by Zasha Colah for the steirischer herbst festival, at Kunsthaus Graz.
