HEATWAVES #1 | I'thandi Munro

EYELEVEL is incredibly excited to welcome our first HEAT WAVES resident I'thandi Munro! I'thandi will be working in our upstairs studio from July 13th to July 25th! Stay tuned for more on I'thandi's residency and what she will be getting up to during her time here.

I'thandi Munro is a professional performance and visual artist. In 2020 she completed her BFA earning a double major in Photography, Jewellery Design and Metalsmithing from NSCAD University. Previously she has studied Social Sciences, and Graphic Design. Munro has studied, performed and taught many forms of dance including Hip-Hop Dance which is her main focus. She is drawn towards micro welding machines, Laser cutters and 3D printers to push her practice in a more digital direction of materiality. Inspired by her childrens line drawings she uses metal to mimic, mirror, and expand them into three dimensional pieces of art jewellery. Through her Photography she uses portraiture which evokes questions about race, culture, and identity. Munro is a current board member of the The Woods professional hip hop dance company, a current NSCAD Research Assistant for Craft And The Digital Turn an SSHRC funded grant, and the current Programming And Communications Assistant for Nocturne: Art At Night.
