iQhiya -

iQhiya is a network of young black women living and working in Cape Town and Johannesburg delving in the realms of performance art, installation, video art, photography and other media. At the core of the group are shared personal and professional experiences that help shape each individual artist through various projects and exhibitions. We have emerged in a time where there are contested notions of the roles of gender and tradition within contemporary South Africa, where the centre of power is no longer solely defined by masculinity. We are the millennial generation of women that choose to define and represent our own narratives. 

 

Artists include: Bronwyn Katz, Thandiwe Msebenzi, Sethembile Msezane, Buhlebezwe Siwani, Matlhogonolo Kelapile, Asemahle Ntlonti and Sisipho Ngodwana.
