The visual arts have also been a feature at HIFA. The annual exhibition is usually in the National Art Gallery and mainly features up and coming artists. This same show featured a fashion show in amongst the installations in the gallery. Popular at the exhibition was an installation by Masimba Hwati called Toward Redemption which featured a Volkswagon seemingly taking off in flight leaving a trail of its parts behind.
