Anawana Haloba (born in Zambia 1978, lives and works in Oslo, Norway) completed her studies at the National Academy of Fine Art, Oslo, in 2006. She is a graduate of the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam, the Netherlands (2008).

Haloba has participated in the Sharjah Biennial (2007), Manifesta 7 (2008) and the 16th Biennale of Sydney (2008) among other exhibitions. For the 16th Sidney Biennale, curator Carolyn Christov-Barkagiev (currently the appointed Artistic Director of Documenta 13 in 2012) commissioned Haloba to produce a video and sound installation titled When the Private Became Public, exploring women's revolutionary passage from the private to the public realm. In 2008, the artist took par t in the project ”The Rest of Now”, curated by Raqs Media Collective as part of Manifesta 7, where she exhibited a sound installation titled The Air Between Two Women (2008), a conversation between herself and Francesca Grilli about the word 'residue' as it relates to human experience. In 2007, for the Sharjah Biennale 8, entitled ”Art, Ecology & the Poltics of Change: Still Life”, co-curated by Jack Persekian, Jonathan Watkins and Eva Scharrer, she exhibited a video and sound installation titled Lamentations (2006). She participated in the Venice Biennial 2009.
