Soft Landing in the Blackfoot Communications Gallery
Gallery Opening on First Friday, February 7, 2020 from 5-8 PM. Show will remain in the Blackfoot Communications Gallery through the month of March, 2020.
This February the ZACC is collaborating with Soft Landing Missoula to host a show by three artists who are refugees from the Democratic Republic of Congo, Moses Bushiri, Luc Mugondozi, and Lorenzo Mugondozi. Their work will remain in the Blackfoot Communications Gallery through the month of March, 2020.
Moses Bushiri, 32, arrived in Missoula with his family in June of 2018. His family had been living in the bustling city of Bujumbura Burundi for several years prior to his arrival in Missoula. Art has been something he has brought with him along his journey. His art depicts not only the struggles but also the beauties of where he comes from.
Luc Mugondozi, 23, came to Missoula with two of his brothers in the winter of 2019. He has a love for fashion and textiles and was quick to gather the supplies he needed to continue the art of sewing once he arrived in Missoula. He has made Missoula his home and hopes to blend the styles and textiles from Africa with those of Missoula to create a fresh and creative look.
Lorenzo Mugondozi, 27, came to Missoula via Campala Uganda in the winter of 2019. He has been drawn to the creative world since he was very young and enjoys painting, clothing design, and being a DJ. He hopes that through his art, people can get a glimpse of Africa.
