Session I : Contemporary Art Scenes in Africa

While state institutions for art and culture in Africa remained burdened by the legacies of colonialism and postcolonialism — along with a healthy dose of institutional inertia — independent arts organizations and collectives are taking up the gauntlet in creating contemporary art scenes and new networks of reception for art in Africa. Some of these include : L’appartement 22 (Rabat, Morocco), Zoma Contemporary Art Center (Addis Ababa, Ethiopia), Contemporary Arts Forum (Alexandria, Egypt), and the more recent Together Art Center (Khartoum, Sudan), Center for Contemporary Art (Lagos, Nigeria), and the Dead Revolutionaries (Johannesburg, South Africa). In this session presenters will discuss their own shifting contexts, strategies, and futures in relation to contemporary art in Africa.

Panelists : Meskerem Assegued (Zoma Contemporary Art Center), Basam El-Baroni (Alexandria Contemporary Art Forum), Hassoum Ceesay (The Gambia Museum), Abdellah Karroum (L’appartement 22), Gabi Ncgobo (independent curator) Moderator : Katarzyna Pieprzak, Williams College
