Zimbabwean Stone Sculptor Alexander Chitungo to Give Talk and Demonstration

Visiting artist Alexander Chitungo is a stone sculptor from Zimbabwe. He is teaching a Shona Stone Sculpture workshop, and will be presenting an artist talk, demonstration, and temporary exhibition on Tuesday, November 20, from 4:00 to 6:00 in the SURC Pit.

Alexander was born in a small town in Marodera, Zimbabwe. Alexander completed his Ordinary Level at Prince Edward School in 1986, in Zimbabwe’s capital of Harare. In 1990 he began apprenticing under his friends Tonderai Marezva and Lincoln Muteta, renowned Shona Sculptors. After two years Alexander set out on his own to develop his unique style, which he calls “shadows in the stone” (Mumvuri mudombo). His work reflects the theme “Voices of Reality”. Alexander has been sculpting stone in Zimbabwe for more than 20 years.

Alexander lives in Chitungwiza, near Harare, with his wife and children. His work is exhibited around the world, from South Africa to The United States. Alexander travels every year to share his passion in sculpting workshops.

This event is sponsored by Africana and Black Studies, Center for Leadership and Community Engagement, and the Department of Art + Design
