A unique opportunity to hear the South African artist and activist in conversation with curator Nicoletta Lambertucci
In a career dedicated to making visible the struggles of those often overlooked, Sue Williamson challenges the way history is remembered and told. The artist, working across a range of disciplines and media, takes the past into the future, locating stories from events such as the Anglo-Boer War to connect younger generations to the experiences of their forebearers.
Join the artist now in conversation with Nicoletta Lambertucci (Contemporary Art Curator at The Box, Plymouth) in a talk to coincide with the first retrospective of her work at The Box in Plymouth.
Nicoletta Lambertucci is Contemporary Art Curator at The Box, Plymouth. From 2010 until 2017 Nicoletta was Curator at the David Roberts Art Foundation (DRAF). In 2019 Nicoletta was the curator of the Serbian Pavilion at the 58th Venice Biennale. In 2011 Nicoletta was Research Fellow at Goldsmiths where she researched pedagogical approaches in museums' programmes in the UK.
Sue Williamson (b. 1941, Lichfield, UK) emigrated with her family to South Africa in 1948. Williamson is part of a pioneering generation of South African artists whose work addresses social change, challenging the apartheid government from the 1970s and critiquing the fraught postapartheid context today. Since the late 1980s, Williamson has become well known for documenting generational trauma and for her focus on women involved in political struggle. 2023 exhibitions include her first UK solo museum show, Between Memory and Forgetting at The Box in Plymouth (4 February - 4 June),Tell Me What You Remember with Lebohang Kganye at the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia (5 March - 21 May), and Other Voices, Other Cities at the Centro Atlantico Arte Moderno in Las Palmas (from 6 July). In November, Williamson takes up a six-week artist-in-residence fellowship at Yale Center for British Art at Yale University. She lives and works in Cape Town, South Africa.
