Africa2020 Season

Like many others, at C& we’ve taken on the challenge of making sense of a fast-changing world. Last year we started our partnership with the Africa2020 Season, a major event taking place in France entirely focused on African perspectives. This included a dedicated print issue to be distributed at Africa2020 venues across the country. Given the circumstances brought about by COVID-19, we’re adapting with an ever-shapeshifting event by inviting distinct voices featured in the program (online and offline) to share their projects and subjectivities with us. Throughout the Africa2020 Season, now stretched throughout 2021, we’ll be making our features available online to coincide with its various launches and openings. We’ll also publish extensive installation views and the full updated event program for Africa2020. Coming up you can expect a roundtable that C& founders Julia Grosse and Yvette Mutumba conducted with N’Goné Fall, the general commissioner of the Africa2020 Season; an interview with Abdelkader Damani, director of the FRAC Centre-Val de Loire in Orléans, about the center of his artistic exploration, Algiers; and an interview with Tunisian artist Najah Zarbout about her home archipelago of Kerkennah’s transformation from a migration point to a potential victim of ecology. The following features will be gradually announced via our website, Instagram, Facebook, and weekly newsletters. Stay connected!
