Description

John Muafangejo’s print Natal Where Art School Is highlights the political transition from nonviolent protests to armed resistance in the 1970s. The work’s stylized imagery and textual embellishments are characteristic of art produced at Rorke’s Drift Art Centre, where Muafangejo trained. Established in Natal in southeastern South Africa in 1962, Rorke’s Drift played a central role in the development of Black art and craft in the 1960s and 1970s.
