‘Emancipate The African Flower 2′ – an exhibition by Selvin November at Sisonke Gallery

For Cape Town artist Selvin November, flowers are a beautiful symbol of nature, each with a unique personality that he works to capture in his paintings. His latest exhibition, Emancipate The African Flower 2 – presented by House Union Block (HUB) at the Sisonke Gallery at the Cape Heritage Hotel from 7 December 2023 until 28 January 2024 – is an exploration of the personal and cultural symbolism of the hibiscus flower, and its deep connection with slavery and the African diaspora.
