Gemma Hart l MA
Gemma Hart is a curator, writer and facilitator based in Johannesburg. She graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts, with distinction, from the University of the Witwatersrand (2016). More recently, Gemma completed, also with distinction, an MA in Contemporary Curatorial Practice (2020) from the same institution.
In her practice-based research, she explores the museum as a pedagogical platform. Gemma is interested in curatorial practice and the ideology of display, specifically focusing on immersive modes of exhibition making while also investigating the inherent power dynamics held within socially constructed space. Her research examines the persistent legacy of colonial ideology which continues to haunt museums in the contemporary moment.
