Artist Interview: Moshekwa Langa


Flash must be enabled to see the video player.

An artist not afraid to draw from a life lived in-between places—physical, mental, and otherwise— Moshekwa Langa creates drawings, photographs, videos, and installations that are poetic, personal, and deeply engaged with the larger world of art, politics, and popular culture. He often uses materials at his immediate disposal, including plastic bags, colorful yarns, masking tape, cement bags, and paint.

Langa was featured in the Walker Art Center’s exhibition How Latitudes Become Forms: Art in a Global Age. For more information about the artist and his work, visit http://latitudes.walkerart.org/artists/index.wac?id=145.
