apexart Resident Vumelani Sibeko
in conversation with
BAS' Amanda Browder

apexart and Bad at Sports continue the Resident Talk collaborations* with current Inbound Resident Vumelani Sibeko in conversation with BAS' Amanda Browder.

Vumelani Sibeko was born in Soweto, one of the Johannesburg neighborhoods created through city segregation. Sibeko studied at Vaal Triangle Technikon between 1997 and 1999, and there became exposed to racial differences. Until February 2012, he used the surname Buthelezi, a surname his father adopted from a family he boarded with after escaping life as a farm laborer in search of a better life in Johannesburg. Read more on his resident page.

Amanda Browder, co-founder of Bad at Sports, is an internationally shown visual artist who lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.

* Over the course of the series, the Bad at Sports team will grill and provoke apexart residents in increasingly ridiculous scenarios while talking art, residencies, the role of conversation, and the inspiration that comes with travel.
