I am pleased be contributing to South African artist Liza Grobler’s one day residencies as part of her solo exhibition at the UCT Irma Stern Museum in Cape Town. Here is the blurb:

“During the past years, I have often collaborated with others, and although VISITOR is a solo exhibition, I am inviting guests to partake in the show. Various collaborations will take place on specific days, but the most extensive project is the residency programme contained in the heart of the exhibition space: 14 artists have the opportunity to occupy this space for 1 day each. This blog will document each intervention. Liza Grobler”
