1-54 Contemporary Africa Art Fair, ONLINE, United Kingdom 10 Oct 2020
This year, 1-54 Forum has been curated by Julia Grosse and Yvette Mutumba, founders and editors-in-chief of Contemporary And (C&) and Contemporary And América Latina (C&AL) and takes place under the title, “I felt like a Black guy from New York trapped in Peru.” Over three afternoons, 1-54 Forum will be engaging with creative Afro-Latin American, Caribbean and African perspectives.
In this current moment that sees a rise of interest in Europe and North America towards Caribbean art scenes and art histories the panel asks questions around who is represented by who, where and how? What does this rising attention mean? How or does this even affect cultural producers from the Caribbean and its Diaspora?
Speakers include CARYL IVRISSE CROCHEMAR (Founding Director of espace d’art contemporain 14N 61W), ALBERTA WHITTLE (Artist), RHEA STORR (Artist) and moderator MAGNUS ELIAS ROSENGARTEN(Writer and artist).
Please note, all talks are Zoom webinars and need to be registered for.
