Andrew Sutherland

Andrew Sutherland completed a Masters in Visual Studies at Stellenbosch University. His research incorporates critical ways of engaging with seemingly everyday objects and how their understanding comes to be communicated to a public audience - focusing on areas of Transformation, Decolonisation, Institutional Critique, and Contemporary Art History and Visual Culture, paying particular attention to the affective embodiment of space.


Andrew currently lectures in the Department of Visual Arts at Stellenbosch University on a regular basis and has presented conference papers and guest lecture seminars at universities across South Africa – including the Institute for Humanities in Africa (HUMA) at the University of Cape Town, the Wits History Workshop and the Wits Institute for Social and Economic Research (WiSER) at the University of the Witwatersrand, and the South African Visual Art Historians (SAVAH) annual conference. 


His focus lies in the role of the gallery and museum on visual culture and society, and to play a key role in the research, development, and curatorial process which holds the potential to lead and remould visual culture from a unique and critical perspective.
