Former gallery owner and well-known curator, Heidi Erdmann remains active in the art-world as an independent curator and curatorial consultant. Erdmann curated her first exhibition in 1993. In 1994 she joined the Iziko South African National Gallery in Cape Town, and in 1997 became the curator at South Africa’s first photography dedicated gallery. She opened The Photographers Gallery ZA in 2001, and in 2004 re-branded and became known as Erdmann Contemporary. She presented her first museum project, launched with an illustrated catalogue at the Johannesburg Art Gallery in 2005. In 2009 she presented her first international project at a private art museum in Rome, Italy and has since curated numerous museum-quality exhibitions hosted at commercial art galleries, private and national art museums and arts festivals both nationally and internationally. She is the recipient of the DIPE Award 2012 (Curatorial Achievements) and a regular jury member for Critical Mass. Erdmann has published several books and exhibition catalogues and is a regular contributor for Dante Mag in London and Omenka Magazine in Lagos, Nigeria.
