This talk will focus on Gabi Ngcobo’s curatorial strategies under the framework of the Center for Historical Reenactments (CHR), a Johannesburg based collaborative platform she co-founded in 2010.
Ngcobo’s creative practice straddles artistic research, education and the curatorial as a way of developing questions about the political potentials in artistic interpretations of histories.
CHR employs citations, transversal research processes, subversion, and mediation; approaches that seek to promote dialogue between artistic practices in order to reveal how certain histories are formed or formulated, repeated, universalized and preserved within these practices.
Ngcobo is a lecturer at the Wits School of Arts, Fine Arts Division.
