Her work from the Self Portrait Series forms part of a group exhibition of South African artists, Am I not a Man and a Brother? Am I not Woman and a Sister?,  at the James Harris Gallery, Seattle, United States. 

Makhuba has just presented a paper at the African Studies Association in Baltimore, USA.

She is currently in Turkey participating in Semiha Es – Women Photographers International Symposium.
One of fourteen leading female photographers invited to present a paper, The Power and Terror of the Enactment of collective Memory in Performative Photography. 

Makhuba guest edited Third Text – The Art of Change in South Africa along with Ruth Simbao. In her chapter Open Debate, Makhubu considers the post apartheid era’s rhetoric of unity in diversity and the contradictory alienating structures that remain within South African Society. Her chapter examines the different strategies used by young artists in confronting the challenges these structures pose.

About Nomusa Makhuba.

 Makhubu  explores issues surrounding identity. She employs identity as a means of reconsidering notions of representation, particularly in a colonial context. 

Currently completing a PhD in Art History and Visual Culture at Rhodes University, Grahamstown, she was recently selected as one of Mail & Guardian’s 200 Young South Africans 2013.

We look forward to hosting Nomusa Makhuba’s solo exhibition in 2014.
