Tammy Langtry, works as a curator, cultural producer and researcher. A student of Art History, she wonders on the bridges between artistic practices to contemporary necessities for writing our histories and realities. Graduating from the University of the Witwatersrand in 2011 (Hons). Working as a Curator, Langtry has developed several independent and institutional curatorial projects. Much of her exhibition making practice has considered historical (no)sense making through memory, and cultural activism. She is interested in curatorial practice as cultural synthesis and the bridges between historicized artistic practice to contemporary art necessities. Some of the exhibitions include; Reflections of the Cape (2014), 21BF (2014), Spatial Relations (2016), States of Grace (2017), FreeSpace (2018), Why Should I Hesitate: Putting Drawings to Work (2019), Laying Bare: Studio Process at the Museum (2019-2020), The Possibility of a Journey (2020), Waiting for Gebane (2020), uMqombothi, uBhokweni neJuba (2023).Langtry has worked across a range of industry and institutional spaces to produce exhibitions, arts programming and other kinds of arts infrastructure: Bag Factory Artist Studios, Art Source Consultancy, Lizamore Gallery, Zeitz MOCAA and with the artist collective, Art Meets.Langtry has contributed towards symposiums, seminars and public discussions listed below; Sober & Lonely Curatorial Lecture series (2010), FreeSpace (2018), Why Should I Hesitate (2019), Head to Head (2020), Why should I Hesitate @ Deichtorhallen (2021), Radical Solidarity Summit (2021), Pow-er Talks (2022), Never Just Food Symposium (2023), Multi-Directional Memory March International Symposium (2023).Her curatorial work has developed into research projects on critical histories in (the making of) South Africa, namely – Sedimenting Stories (2023) into the quarries in Cape Town which built and defined the colonial city of Cape Town (research developed with Talya Lubinsky) as well as an artistic research project into the colonial Durban System, uMqombothi, uBhokweni neJuba (with Russel Hlongwane).We are looking forward to working with Tammy Langtry and through her gaze and curatorial practice discover/rediscover the collection, hoping to bring to our audience in 2024 her exhibition and publish the respective catalogue.
