(Zimbabwe, 1977)


Dan Halter è nato in Zimbabwe nel 1977. Nel 2001 si è laureato all'Università di Cape Town. La sua ricerca artistica esplora i confini geografici, il fenomeno migratorio e altri temi politici e sociali, attraverso un uso acuto dei materiali popolari e una forte attenzione al loro valore simbolico. Le sue mostre personali includono Take Me To Your Leader 2006 (João Ferreira Gallery, Cape Town), Mafuta Farm 2017 (Dillon + Lee, New York), Zimbabwean Traffic 2017 (Skövde Konstmuseet, Skövde, Sweden) e Patience Can Cook a Stone 2018 (Whatiftheworld / Gallery, Cape Town). E' stato artista in residenza a Zurigo, Colonia, Torino, Rio de Janeiro e Dufftown in Scozia.
