Mbali Dhlamini (MA University of the Witwatersrand, 2015) is a multidisciplinary artist and visual researcher.
Dhlamini performs visual, tactile and discursive investigations into current indigenous cultural practices. With a view towards decolonized practices in contemporary culture, her work is in constant conversation with her past and present visual landscapes. Working to maintain a state of unlearning and relearning, Dhlamini’s process recognises language as a medium of understanding and as a repository of knowledge.
Dhlamini is a dynamic and energetic practitioner who exists across roles within the arts sector - from producing her own work to facilitating self-sustaining artist collectives, exhibitions and other art-centered gatherings.
