Lungiswa Gqunta: Sleep in Witness - Research Events

Lungiswa Gqunta (b. 1990) is a South African sculptor who works across assemblage, installation, performance and printmaking.

Sleep in Witness traces the intangible world of dreams as a space of learning where extraordinary, overlooked and discredited places of knowledge are illuminated. The exhibition includes two new installations, Zinodaka 2022 and Ntabamanzi 2022, along with the video Gathering 2019.

Join us for a series of free online and in-person events celebrating the work and themes of the exhibition.
