Lagos Biennial Curatorial Intensive Programme

The Lagos Biennial is calling for applications for the first edition of its Curatorial Intensive Programme scheduled to be held during the Lagos Biennial between 28th October – 2nd November 2019.

The week-long programme is designed to provide basic technical and theoretical knowledge in the field of curating to emerging curators. Participants will receive first-hand advice from seasoned professionals  for an on-going or future project. The programme seeks to facilitate new approaches in assessing knowledge and approaching topics, situations , and linguistics critical to African narratives and perspectives. Participants will undertake rigorous sessions designed to give precedence to their own world view, while re-assessing popular terminologies and trends which are used to situate Africa in the global art discourse.

Facilitators for the curatorial intensive include: N’goné Fall (Chief Facilitator), George Mahashe, Kwasi Ohene-Ayeh, Dana Whabira, Samuel Leuenberger, and Patrick Mudekereza.

Emerging curators working on and off the continent are invited to apply to participate in a one-week intensive programme which will take place in Lagos Nigeria from the 28th October to  3rd November, 2019. The intensive will run through the first week of the Lagos Biennial.

Selected participants will have daily interactions with the Faculty – seasoned curators who will engage the participants in various sessions targeted at passing on practical knowledge and insights from the field.

Interested participants are requested to send a one-page letter of motivation via email to: before September 10, 2019.
