Lungiswa Gqunta completed her MFA at Michaelis in 2017. From 17 May-30 June, she is exhibiting Qwitha, her second solo exhibition at Whatiftheworld Gallery in Cape Town, and will also participate in the European Nomadic Biennial, Manifesta 12 in Palermo.
Michaelis alumni Lisa Brice first began working on her series of blue female nudes in 2014. “The situations are imagined,” she says, “but based on real experience.” They’ve been all-consuming at times: “I painted a group of 60 continuously day and night for a month,” she says.
Visiting lecturer form Johannesburg’s Market Photo Workshops, Mack Magagane and Michaelis staff Sitaara Stodel and Svea Josephy, took the second year photography students on a walking photography tour of the city this week, looking for inspiration for Mack’s “Invisible Cities” project.
