Mills College Art Lecture Series: Nandipha Mntambo
October 7th, 2015
7:00 PM, Danforth Lecture Hall
Born in 1982, Mntambo graduated with a Masters in Fine Art from the Michaelis School of Fine Art, University of Cape Town, in 2007. She won the Standard Bank Young Artist Award for Visual Art in 2011, for which she produced the national travelling exhibition Faena. Mntambo has had five solo shows at Stevenson in Cape Town and Johannesburg and two at Andréhn-Schiptjenko, Stockholm. In her work, Mntambo makes cascading sculptures that are molded from cowhide and suggest the human figure. These three-dimensional works, along with her photographs, videos, and performances, explore the similarities and differences between humans and animals, men and women, and attraction and repulsion.
