This public event celebrates an exciting new partnership between The John Kobal Foundation and Tate, running for the next six years, with an annual talk given by an international lens-based artist, collective or professional in the field.
Building on the Foundation's continued commitment over the last three decades to fostering the creative community and supporting artists, this talk coincides with the launch of the John Kobal Foundation Fellowship, presented every two years in recognition of an outstanding body of lens-based work by an international artist or collective, enabling them to progress their practice in a way that would otherwise not be possible.
We are delighted to announce that the inaugural John Kobal Foundation fellow and recipient of the award is the South African photographer Lindokuhle Sobekwa. This event is a unique opportunity to learn about the evolution of his photographic practice to date. Sobekwa is joined in conversation by curator David Campany.
