Lakwena Maciver @ Hastings Contemporary

18 June 2022 - 25 September 2022

An exhibition of Lakwena Maciver’s Jump Paintings, with abstract portraits of some of the most inspiring Basketball Players, both past and present.

The origins of these ‘Jump paintings’ stem from two full-size courts painted in 2020 in Pine Bluff, Arkansas, to honour Senator Flowers, whose impassioned 2019 speech against proposed ‘Stand Your Ground’ legislation went viral and inspired Lakwena in the wake of the Black Lives Matter movement the following year. Entitled I’ll bring you flowers, the defiantly joyful paintings used the universality of the basketball court as a canvas to speak of hope in the face of oppression and blessing through adversity.
