LACOSTE, FRANCE.- Having hosted his first
solo exhibition in Savannah in 2007, the SCAD exhibitions department is
to present Nicholas Hlobo in “Paintings,” a solo exhibition at Galerie
Pfriem at
SCAD Lacoste, France. “Paintings,” a compilation of new works on canvas,

discards notions of traditional painting techniques and presents
canvases that
have been slashed then delicately stitched with distinct materials such
satin, rubber, gauze and leather. Hlobo’s richly layered, tactile works
anchored in the post-­‐Apartheid South African culture the artist was
in, and reflect on larger human issues such as language, gender,
sexuality, race
and communication. “Paintings” will be on view at Galerie Pfriem at SCAD

Lacoste, France, from July 3-­‐Aug. 28, 2010.
