Tamary Kudita (Zimbabwe, 1994) is one of the 25. This image, The Gathering, is from the series African Victoria (2020). Kudita: ‘My work speaks directly to the common reality amongst people of colour of an “obscured history” which often negates our individual stories. Thus, making a commentary on history and its selective unfolding. Through portraiture, I merge my contemporary aesthetic with a historical aesthetic as a way of showing how the old informs the new’.
The 5 winners will be announced at the Basel International Art Fair in September, 2021.
