Kabelo Malatsie is a curator and organiser. She is director of the Kunsthalle Bern since April 2022. Her ongoing curatorial research project explores the exhibitionary mode as unlikely starting points that place incongruous practices together, to instigate other ways of making and reading the world we inhabit. As an organiser she is preoccupied with the notion of autonomy, specifically temporary autonomous zones within the African context. She was recently director of Visual Arts Network of South Africa (2018-2019) and she was associate in the curatorial team at Stevenson gallery in Cape Town and Johannesburg (2011 – 2016). As a freelance curator, she recently co-curated the exhibition Deliberation on Discursive Justice for the Yokohama Triennale (Japan 2020), participated to In the Open or in Stealth for Barcelona’s MACBA (Spain 2018), and solo exhibitions across various institutions in South Africa for artists such as Nicholas Hlobo, Moshekwa Langa and Sabelo Mlangeni.
