Since the early 2000s, Gabi Ngcobo has been engaged in collaborative artistic, curatorial and educational projects in South Africa and on an international scope. Based in Johannesburg, Ngcobo is curating the upcoming 10th Berlin Biennale. She also co-curated the 32nd Biennale de Sao Paulo and was a co-founder of the collaborative platform Center for Historical Reenactments (CHR), a project that responded to and explored how historical legacies impact and resonate within contemporary art. Her new initiative, NGO (Nothing Gets Organised) focuses on processes of self-organization that take place outside of predetermined structures, definitions, contexts or forms.
Ngcobo will be in conversation with New York-based Adrienne Edwards, Performa curator and curator-at-large at the Walker Art Center, to discuss Johannesburg’s art and culture scene through the prism of South Africa’s post-apartheid era and contemporary curatorial practice. RSVP here.
