Kabelo Malatsie
(born 1987, Johannesburg)

Kabelo Malatsie is a curator and organizer whose work explores the exhibitionary mode as an instigator of remaking and rereading the world we inhabit.

At Amant Siena, Malatsie will explore the notion of the underground, as it has been described by writer and scholar Njabulo Ndebele: the unknown and the unknowable, multi-axial, multi timelines, non-linear and domesticated knowledge. During her residency, Malatsie will rehearse different practices such as interviews, texts, performance, screenings, gardening, cooking, walking, conversations and all forms of “domesticated knowledge’” to explore what exists but is out of sight.

Kabelo Malatsie is the former Director of Visual Arts Network of South Africa (2018-2019) a development agency for the visual arts in South Africa, promoting connection, access, and innovation in our industry. Kabelo holds a Master’s degree in Art History from the University of Witwatersrand, Johannesburg. In 2020, she was co-curator alongside Raqs Media Collective of the exhibition Deliberation on Discursive Justice as part of the Yokohama Triennale, Japan.
