Penny Stamps Lecture Series says
Zimbabwean multi-disciplinary artist Masimba Hwati examines postcolonial themes by re-appropriating archives and objects and presenting them in new contexts. With an emphasis on sculptural work, Hwati collects historical, culturally imbued items ranging from cars and shoes, to scrap metal and found objects, altering and repositioning them in a contemporary urban setting. Featured in the 2015 Venice Biennale, Hwati’s work, “Urban Totems” questions the views of Ubuntu in the 21st century by investigating how technology has compromised humanity. He has been in solo and group exhibitions in France, Germany, Australia, Botswana, and Zambia, and has collaborated with artists from Detroit, South Africa and Southern Africa.

In partnership with the Zimbabwe Cultural Center of Detroit, with support from the Department of Afroamerican and African Studies, Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD), and the N’Namdi Center for Contemporary Art.
