Tracey Rose belongs to a generation of artists reinventing the artistic gesture in post-apartheid South Africa. She creates a provocative, complex visual world referencing theatre and satire. She challenges the aesthetics of international contemporary art and post-colonial and feminist issues at large. Working in multiple media, Rose places her body at the centre of her practice, using the roles given to Africans and to African women in a male-dominated world. Rose exhibits and performs widely, including at the Johannesburg Art Gallery, Dakar Biennial, Walker Art Center, The Project, Venice Biennale, Haywood Gallery, Brooklyn Museum, Tate Liverpool, Bildmuseet, Museo Reina Sofia, WIELS, Dan Gunn, EVA International, São Paulo Biennial, Biennial of Moving Images, MAMBA, Buenos Aires, documenta 14, Performa 17 and the Sharjah Biennial. This year she has a major survey exhibition of her work with an accompanying monograph at Zeitz MOCAA, Cape Town.
