11.10.-10.12.2020, Black Lives Matter, Artivist Lab, Prague
Together with Petri Saarikko I was invited to have our first solo exhibition in Prague at the Artivist Lab space. The exhibition including our video work Black Lives Matter Due to the pandemic and lock-down in Prague, we were not able to transport nor travel to set up and give an artist talk and to meet the community on location. Because of this, the exhibition was documented in video introduced by the gallery director and curator artist Tamara Moyzes. Additionally, there was also an online event as part of Festival 4x4 Days together with Yemi A.D. and moderated by Zeynab Gueye, Isaac Herron.
21.9.2020, Advisory Committee, Rotterdam
The institution formerly known as the Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art in Rotterdam has announced that they will rename the institution. The name change initiative involves: (a) acknowledgement; (b) research; (c) community building; and (d) public participation. The initiative is designed to delve into dissonant heritage. It emphasizes the role that art institutions like theirs have in society to foster mutual understanding. On 14 June 2020, they announced that the new name of the institution will come into effect on 27 January 2021. The institutions director Sofía Hernández Chong Cuy invited me to become a member of the Advisory Committee of their institution’s Name Change Initiative. The committee included a group of artists, curators, academics and cultural practitioners that are considered our institutional and local stakeholders, as well as from our international network.
