Bronwyn graduated from the Michaelis School of Fine Art, Cape Town in 2015. Through her work, Bronwyn engages with land as a repository of memory, motivated by the capacity of the landscape to remember and communicate its past. These memories of construction and destruction feed into the physicality of her multi-form work.

In 2015 she was awarded the Simon Gershwin Prize from the University of Cape Town and the Merit Prize, Sasol New Signatures, Pretoria. Exhibitions include Le jour qui vient, Galerie des Galeries, Paris (2017); Dak’Art – Biennale de l’Art Africain Contemporain, Dakar (2016); The Quite Violence of Dreams, Stevenson Gallery, Johannesburg (2016) and Figure and 3 881 days, blank projects, Cape Town (2016). Katz is a founding member of iQhiya, an 11-women artist collective which has performed across various venues, including Greatmore Studios, the AVA Gallery and Iziko South African National Gallery, Cape Town and most recently, documenta 14, Athens and Kassel (2016–17).
