Portia is an independent art curator and founder of Silence Is Accurate (SIA). She has worked alongside innovative organizations that nurture artists, such as chashama, and she continues to cultivate unconventional platforms for visual arts showcases. 

SIA is an arts consultancy she launched as an extension of her focus on emerging artists. The agency specializes in site-specific installation, neon and contemporary art.

Makoma is currently interested in work that creates a dialogue about our generation’s identity, our environment, our questions and relationships. Collaborating with process-driven artists, she aims to inspire and continue dialogues that address the human condition across time and culture. 
Portia is based in New York City and Cape Town.
