Rising young South African artist Mary Sibande constructs elaborate visual narratives that address race, gender, and class in post-colonial South Africa. While her work has been exhibited at the Venice Biennale, and throughout South Africa, Brazil, Germany, and France, SIbande’s exhibitions at the University of Michigan mark only the second time her work has been shown in the U.S. Mary Sibande will be present at the opening reception on September 13, 4 - 7 pm.
In addition to her exhibition at Slusser, Sibande’s Ann Arbor residency includes an original installation at the U-M Institute for the Humanities gallery, Penny Stamps lectures in Ann Arbor and Detroit, an open studio at the Stamps School, and exhibitions at Gallery DAAS, and the U-M Museum of Art.
