Honours in Curatorship First Week Workshop

The honours in curatorship students started off the year with a workshop titled "The Biography of an Object". The workshop was run by Nina Liebenberg and Lyndall Cain with guest speakers Bongani Kona and Andrew Juries. Given that this year's honours course focuses largely around object studies the class began by looking at an object close to them in some way.
