Mary Sibande is a rising young South African artist who 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.
About Sibande On Campus
Sibande On Campus encompasses the exciting array of events related to South African artist Mary Sibande’s Kidder Residency in the Arts at the U-M Institute for the Humanities. It includes an original installation produced onsite at the Institute for the Humanities Gallery, a Penny W. Stamps lecture, and exhibition of Sibande’s existing work at GalleryDAAS, the U-M Museum of Art, and the Stamps School Slusser Gallery. This project represents a unique cross-campus collaboration surrounding the work of one artist and bringing together the energy and ideas of five U-M entities.
Lead support for this project is provided by the Kidder Residency in the Arts at the Institute for the Humanities. Additional support for GalleryDAAS is provided by the African Studies Center.
GalleryDAAS supports the mission of the Department of Afroamerican and African Studies (DAAS) by exhibiting emerging and established artists from throughout the African Diaspora. Working with artists, curators and art historians as well as DAAS/U-M faculty, the gallery is a catalyst for acknowledging the work of original art by artists of Africa and its diaspora, not only through our exhibitions, but by hosting artist residencies and visits, and encouraging unique teaching opportunities for both DAAS and the broader U-M community.
GallerDAAS is administered by the DAAS Exhibitions Committee and typically has two to three exhibitions during the regular school year (Fall/Winter). For more information, please contact V. Robin Grice at email@example.com.
