Afropolicity took place on the interior and exterior walls of Njelele Art Station, as an exploration of the urban identity and cultural personality of our cities and society in Zimbabwe.
Inspired by a poem entitled Afropolicity, Combing the streets by spoken word and urban artist Tinofireyi Zhou, the exhibition defied the conventions of the quintessential white cube and artist working in seclusion to interrogate the role and position of the artist in the broader context of the city, the country and the world. Various artists created work in public spaces in and around Njelele Art Station, demonstrating a participatory public art practice that generated public interaction. The 25 pieces on show revealed a desire for reflection, discussion and social response.
