1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair New York

Artistic Director Sandrine Colard will take part in the discussion “Opening Spaces” organised in the framework of the 1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair FORUM programme in New York.

“A woman writer must have an imagination that is plain stubborn, that can invent new gods and banish ineffectual ones” wrote Yvonne Vera in her anthology Opening Spaces published in 1999. The panelists discuss ways that they have innovated on the notion of spaces for viewing and engaging with art objects and audiences. CATINCA TABACARU (Founder, Catinca Tabacaru Gallery), STEPHANIE BAPTIST (Founder and Director, Medium Tings) and SANDRINE COLARD (Artistic Director, 6th Edition of the Biennale de Lubumbashi) join moderator ADEZE WILFORD (Curatorial Assistant, The Shed).
