Ukutula: Our Timeless Journeys
OFF-SITE: 9 November 2024–11 May 2025
OFF-SITE: Museum London, 421 Ridout St N, London, ON
Curated by Qanita Lilla, Associate Curator, Arts of Africa.

Ukutula, which translates as singing in isiZulu, features powerful works of traditional African art of the Justin and Elisabeth Lang collection at AGNES, in chorus with contemporary art works by Winsom Winsom, Camille Turner, Jessica Karuhanga, Jill Glatt, and Anthony Gebrehiwot. Collectively, the works in this exhibition think about what it means to come to this place called Canada from elsewhere and to settle in a place with such an unsettling history. How can a choir of Ukutula lift our spirits and make us soar?

Ukutula is a travelling exhibition, developed by Agnes and hosted by Museum London.
