About

Christine Dixie is an established South African artist, who has regularly exhibited in that country, the US and Europe. She is primarily a printmaker, but her art also finds expression through films or elaborate installations.

Her work challenges the ways gender roles have been historically conditioned by society, myths, and image-making. The manifestation of the colonial history that haunts the town of Makhanda, (the Eastern Cape city where she lives) has compelled her preoccupation with Europe‚Äôs legacy in Africa. Her practice and aesthetic rely on archival imagery and in-depth research. 

She currently has several exhibitions showing in Johannesburg, Blueprint for the DisOrder of Things is on at the Wits Art Museum, @Bathurst St., Makhanda  is on at the Gallery of the  SARChi Chair, University of Johannesburg and her series  Harbouring Fanon is on at Graham Contemporary. Her multi-media installation, To Be King is now open at the Iwalewahaus in Bayreth Germany.
