We face forward : art from West Africa today by Koyo Kouoh( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To celebrate the 2012 Olympics and offer a global welcome to the many visitors who will be visiting the UK and, in particular, the North West, Manchester's two main galleries will collaborate for the first time on a major exhibition of contemporary art drawn from countries in West Africa. Taking place across three locations, Manchester Art Gallery, Platt Hall (Gallery of Costume) and the Whitworth Art Gallery and Park, the exhibition will feature painting, photography, textiles, sculpture, video and sound work - from a wide range of practitioners whose work is internationally acclaimed, but relatively little seen in the UK. The title of the exhibition is taken from a speech by Ghana's first president, Kwame Nkrumah, made in 1960. Stating his resistance to cold war super powers, Nkrumah's full quote is 'We face neither East nor West: we face forward.' The exhibition takes its direction from Nkrumah's statement of independence, deriving inspiration from his sense of West African cultural dynamism. This publication will include biographies and colour images of all the artists in the exhibition plus the musicians, performers and other artists who are contributing to the public programme. It will feature an introductory essay by the curators of the exhibition and a number of contextual essays by curators and writers who specialise in African art.--Cornerhouse
On curating. interviews with fourteen international curators by Carolee Thea( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On Curating 2, Carolee Thea's new volume of interviews with 14 of today's leading curators, explores the lively system of art biennials that is thriving around the world--particularly outside Europe and America. Spawned by their more formal Western predecessors and motivated by the forces of history and politics, the newer incarnations of the biennial often occur in the cities of the postcolonial world and the Global South, as well as in former socialist countries. The new generation of curators who are organizing these surprisingly provocative and experimental exhibitions hail from cities as diverse as Bogotá, Dakar, Havana, Jakarta, Jerusalem, Lagos, Mumbai, Seoul and Zagreb, and they are the subjects of the interviews collected in this book

Condition report : symposium on building art institutions in Africa = Etat des lieux : symposium sur la création d'institutions d'art en Afrique by Symposium Condition Report on Building Art Institutions in Africa( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Condition Report: Symposium on Building Art Institutions in Africa is a collection of essays resulting from of the symposium held in Dakar in 2012. They address the changing role of art institutions and initiatives in Africa, where the cultural and artistic context is characterized by a predominance of government led art programs and infrastructure. The last decade has witnessed the emergence of a variety of independent art spaces using a wide range of formats to promote art and critical exchange. These initiatives draw a new cartography of artistic action in Africa. This reader looks at the structural and programmatic issues at play within those institutions. Models and profiles of art institutions developed in other regions of the world are also examined. The publication also discusses how former colonial powers define and implement their strategies of cultural representation and exchange in post-colonial areas, and how these in turn influence local dynamics of cultural action

Philip Aguirre y Otegui : théâtre source : Ndogpassi by Philip Aguirre y Otegui( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in Dutch and French and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2013, sculptor and visual artist Philip Aguirre y Otegui built a natural spring in the slums of Douala, Cameroon's largest city. The object is a functional and aesthetic whole comprising a laundry station, open-air theatre, and gathering place. Realised in cooperation with the community, it has since become the social and symbolic centre of the district. It came about as part of SUD2010 (Salon Urbain de Douala), for which the artist was invited by curator Koyo Kouoh to design a project. Through the work, the social meaning of art in public space within the postcolonial context of urbanisation and water issues in contemporary African cities is examined.

Hypocrisy : the site specificity of morality by Stina Högkvist( Book )

Abdoulaye Konate : useful dreams by Koyo Kouoh( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Blain/Southern exhibition, 'Useful dreams', is a comprehensive survey of the work of the Malian artist Abdoulaye Konaté, one of the most eminent West African artists of his generation. 'Useful dreams' comprises works from the 1990s to the present, including nine new works created for this significant presentation. Konaté is known for his large-scale compositions that use figurative and symbolic language. His textile-based installations explore socio-political and environmental issues, both specific to Mali and further afield; scenes of societal turmoil, military conflict, sovereignty, faith, globalisation, ecological shifts and the AIDS epidemic, all become subject to investigation and semiotic deconstruction. Employing materials typical to Mali, namely woven and dyed cloths, hand-embroidered and stitched together, Konaté draws on the West African tradition of using textiles as a mode of communication and commemoration. His referral to a localised cultural technique is then astutely realigned to meet with a wider geopolitical framework, the material acting as an intercessor between local and global structures

Project 1975 : contemporary art and the postcolonial unconscious by Jelle Bouwhuis( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Project 1975 is published in collaboration with the Stedelijk Museum Bureau, Amsterdam and discusses globalisation in art and the relationship between the Dutch postcolonial predicament and contemporary art by its institutions. The result of a two-year programme of exhibitions, commissioned essays, events and research at the Stedelijk, Project 1975 is a study of the effects of multicultural society on the visual arts. Taking its name from the year that Suriname officially became independent from The Netherlands, the book offers answers to current social and political questions affecting the visual arts: Is the power position of the stereotypical European white male coloniser less strong these days? How has post-colonial theory contributed to a better understanding of artists from areas such as Suriname? Has the sophisticated art infrastructure of the West been instrumental in abolishing divisions between Western and non-Western art, or has it rationalised and maintained these distinctions? Project 1975 approaches these questions from a variety of perspectives, to open up the discussion and provide suggestions for future approaches. Contributors include Jelle Bouwhuis and Kerstin Winking from the Stedelijk Museum Bureau, art critic and historian Sven Lutticken and Ashley Dawson. Interviews, texts and illustrations accompany the essays, alongside photographs of the works displayed in the Project 1975 exhibitions at the Stedelijk.--Publisher
