Strauss & Co. February Online Auction, Guest Curator: Nandipha Mntambo
Renowned South African artist Nandipha Mntambo is the first guest curator in what is to be an ongoing series of collaborations between Strauss & Co and established and up-and-coming artists. This collaboration was facilitated by Everard Read.
Mntambo was born in Swaziland, now eSwatini, and lives and works in Johannesburg, South Africa. Having exhibited internationally and locally, she is a stand-out name in the art world, having been nominated for the AIMIA | AGO Photography Prize 2014, as well as being selected as a Civitella Ranieri Fellow in 2013. Mntambo’s work is recognisable for its use of contorted and moulded cow hide and skin and her photography dealing with the human body, its link to animals as well as other subtle undertones of femininity.
