Claudette Schreuders
Born 06 February 1973

Since graduating from the Michaelis School of Fine Art in 1998 with the Master’s degree show Family Tree, Claudette Schreuders has become recognised as one of South Africa’s leading sculptors and printmakers. She first gained international attention when taking part in the Liberated Voices exhibition at the Museum for African Art in New York in 1999. Two years later, her solo exhibition, Burnt by the Sun, was shown at the Jack Shainman Gallery in New York, and in 2004 and 2005, The Long Day toured the USA, cementing her international reputation. Since then, Schreuders has been part of many national and international group exhibitions, including Impressions from South Africa: 1965 to Now at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 2011, and has had several acclaimed solo exhibitions, including Close, Close in 2011 and Great Expectations in 2013. A sculpture from her Close, Close series was recently acquired by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and a major monograph of her work, with texts by Rory Bester, Fay Hirsch and Antjie Krog, was published by Prestel in 2011.
