interview text





onepeople met with Sue Williamson on her birthday in 1998. A gathering of artists and curators sat under the starlit Cape Town skies behind Sue's house, laughter and conversation filling the air, delicious food disappearing from our plates.

Sue is an inspiration to all that meet her. We were very happy to meet with her and we arranged to conduct an interview later at her work space. Sue publishes an on-line art site called Artthrob.

The photos that you see above were taken at the Johannesburg Biennale and at her workspace. The photo on the extreme left is used courtesy of the Biennale Program.

Sue Williamson lives in Cape Town, South Africa and is a practicing artist who has shown work on the Biennales of Havana, Sydney, Venice and Johannesburg and at The Museum for African Art in New York City. Her work has been published in major public collections both in South Africa and overseas. She is the author of Resistance Art in South Africa (1989), and co-author of ART in SOUTH AFRICA the future present (1996)
