Capital city art lovers can prepare for two new art exhibitions, set to open soon.
The showcases, titled The Insight of Intrusive Women and Hokverhale, will be exhibited at the National Gallery (NAGN) and The Project Room respectively, both focusing on topical issues.

Hokverhale
With this collection, Rudolf Seibeb strives to strike a balance between abstract and realistic portrayal.
He discovered his creative calling at a young age while playing with laundry pens. His early work shows a unique style that is still visible in his art today.
As his medium has shifted from laundry pens to paints, he maintains a strong connection between the two and still uses different elements in his work.
In what is described as a “local version of Picasso's constructed sculpture or assembly methods,” Seibeb uses pieces of iron, wood and concrete, as well as less conventional items such as animal skin and tree roots.
His art provides a glimpse into cultural, social and environmental issues as experienced by the people in his community, and provides valuable insight into his daily life.
“Art is something that comes from within you. You can use your time to create something special, something that was already in you,” he said about the art industry.
Hokverhale - Navigating a Lockdown launches on Wednesday, 23 June, at The Project Room. The exhibition will run until Tuesday, 4 July.
The gallery is open Tuesdays to Saturdays from 10:00 to 13:00, and on Saturday, 27 June, and Saturday, 4 July, Seibeb will be at the gallery to talk about his work.

The Insight of Intrusive Women
This solo exhibition by Elisia Nghidishange sheds light on the ways women are treated. According to the artist, women need love, care and freedom to express themselves in any way. This exhibition serves as a form of activism for women's rights and for those unable to stand up for their own rights.
The themes include transparency, the expression of emotions, goals and the jumble of unsolicited thinking and behaviour.
The collection offers a critical look at the prejudices of the 21st century. Nghidishange's art gives symbolic meaning to the ways in which traditional stories influence people's social dynamics. Her work is relevant to the current social and economic climate.
The exhibition opens on Thursday, 18 June, in the NAGN’s top gallery and runs until 18 July.
It can also be viewed online at nagn.org.na.
