Robin Rhode

South African 1976- 

Born in 1976 in Cape Town, Robin Rhode received a BFA from Technikon Witwatersrand (now the University of Johannesburg) in 1998 and graduated in 2000 from the South African School of Film, Television, and Dramatic Art in Johannesburg. In 1997, Rhodes started making performative drawings on public walls using charcoal, chalk and paint and soon began photographing and filming these pieces. His works, which are a marriage of street art and performance – and the documentation thereof, are a commentary on socio-cultural issues such as identity, race, violence, and politics. Rhode lives and works in Berlin, Germany.

His awards and residencies include the Zurich Art Prize (2018); Roy R Neuberger Exhibition Prize, New York, USA (2014); Illy Prize at Art Brussels (2007); Walker Art Center residency (2003); Karl Hofer Gesellschaft residency (2001); and South African National Gallery residency (2000). In addition to exhibiting extensively in major exhibitions across the world, his work is part of many prominent collections including the Smithsonian Institute (Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden) in Washington, DC, USA; Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessey, Paris, France; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, NY, USA; South African National Gallery, Cape Town; The Museum of Modern Art, NY, USA; and Centre Pompidou, Paris, France.
