What It’s Like To…Run an Art Gallery in Harare

In a country where art doesn’t get enough recognition as an economic driver, gallery owners like Marcus Gora cultivate creative spaces against all odds. Amid the financial crisis of 2008, Gora felt the need to support emerging artists leaving Zimbabwe in search of greener pastures. His gallery, co-founded with Valerie Kabov, an art educator and historian, has become a leading contemporary art space in Zimbabwe. Despite challenges like the availability and quality of art education, Gora's gallery develops strategies to overcome economic instability and negative perceptions of Zimbabwe. Over 15 years, the gallery has hosted numerous exhibitions, artist residencies, and collaborative projects, nurturing local and international talent.
