Artist Molemo Moiloa will give a talk titled Art For Humanity on Wednesday May 15 at 12 noon at the City Campus, Durban University of Technology.

Moiloa lives and works in Johannesburg, and has worked in various capacities at the intersection of creative practice and community organizing. Her academic work has focused on the political subjectivities of South African youth. She is also one half of the artist collaborative MADEYOULOOK, who explore everyday popular imaginaries and their modalities for knowledge production.

Up until recently, she was Director of the Visual Arts Network of South Africa (VANSA). She also works within the Market Photo Workshop, the School of Arts and Social Anthropology Department at the University of the Witwatersrand, and with TML Creative Consultancy among others.

Moiloa has both a BA Fine Arts (cum laude) and MA Social Anthropology (cum laude) degree from Wits University. MADEYOULOOK was nominated for the Vera List Center Prize for Art and Politics 2016/17 at the New School, New York. She was also a Chevening Clore Fellow 2016/17, and winner of a Vita Basadi Award for 2017.

The AFH Artist Talk series is free and open to the public. All public events are family and children friendly.

This event is made possible through a grant by the National Lotteries Commission.
