Meleko Mokgosi has created a new digital work viewable around the clock on a three-story building on Oxford Street in London, presented by W1 Curates. The project comprises an algorithmic sequence of image fragments and text panels from Mokgosi’s narrative paintings, digitally adapted to the full scale on a ten-minute loop across the building’s facade. W1 Curates aims to bring art to the people by using state-of-the-art technology to transform the exterior of the Flannels London flagship store into a digital exhibition space.

Honor

Meleko Mokgosi
2020 Soros Arts Fellowship

Meleko Mokgosi has been selected to receive the 2020 Soros Arts Fellowship, alongside nine other cultural practitioners working at the intersection of migration, public space, and the arts. He will receive a stipend to realize an ambitious project titled Pan-African Pulp over the next eighteen months. Through publications, murals, posters, and a digital archive, Mokgosi will explore histories of Pan-Africanism in southern African pulp photo-novels of the 1960s and 1970s, with the aim of reviving ideas of Pan-Africanism and Black consciousness to build transcontinental alliances between groups fighting systems of oppression today.
