Renowned contemporary artist, Athi-Patra Ruga recently exhibited his new works of art at the University of Cape Town’s (UCT) Irma Stern Museum.

Ruga was an artist-in-residence for three months at the Irma Stern Museum, where he worked on new art pieces in response to some of Irma Stern’s most iconic paintings. The exhibition: Athi & Irma …An Intervention also featured select examples of his tapestries from 2009 to 2018, which referenced paintings done by Irma Stern during her 1943 and 1946 expeditions in central Africa.
