About the artist
Kapwani Kiwanga is an artist who has emerged in recent years as a highly acknowledged figure within the international contemporary art scene. In 2018, she received both the inaugural Frieze Artist Award (USA) and the Sobey Art Award (Canada), and in 2020 she won the Prix Marcel Duchamp (France).
After completing studies in Anthropology and Comparative Religion at McGill University, with a focus on medical anthropology and an idea of going into documentary filmmaking, Kiwanga turned to the visual arts and attended École normale supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris, where she is now based. Drawing on her education, experiences, ongoing research and commitment to observation, Kiwanga produces work across a wide variety of artistic mediums to explore the plurality of histories.
