Dineo Seshee Bopape

Born in Polokwane, Bopape studied at the Durban University of Technology, South Africa, and earned her MFA from Columbia University (2010.) Her work has been shown internationally, including at the New Museum (New York), ICA (Philadelphia); Mart House Gallery (Amsterdam); the 12th Biennale de Lyon (France) and most recently the 32nd Bienale de Sao Paolo (Brazil). Bopape lives and works in Johannesburg. Using performance, experimental video montages, sound, found objects, photographs and dense sculptural installations, her artwork "engages with powerful socio-political notions of memory, narration and representation." Recent awards includes the notable Standard Bank Young Artist Award for Visual Art and the prestigious Future Generation Art Prize (both 2017) founded by the Victor Pinchuk Foundation in Kiev, Ukraine
