Eva Barois De Caevel has been named the recipient of Independent Curators International’s 2014 Independent Vision Curatorial Award. The biannual award is given each year to an emerging international curator who shows promise in their exhibition making.
Eva Barois De Caevel was selected by deputy director and chief curator of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation Nancy Spector, who will present the award to her at the ICI’s Annual Benefit and Auction on November 17.
Eva Barois De Caevel is an independent curator based in Paris and the assistant curator at Raw Material Company, Dakar. She was selected from a shortlist of 15 emerging curators from around the world who were nominated by 15 internationally established curators for the strengths of exhibitions or projects they have recently produced.
“Eva Barois De Caevel’s unflinching curatorial practice tackles some of today’s most urgent issues, including sexuality and human rights, in a postcolonial world. Working collaboratively to encourage dialogue and participation among her audiences, with issues both local and global, she is courageously expanding the curatorial field.” – Nancy Spector
