The African Art in Venice Forum

Words by Elena Scarpa
April 18, 2017

The African Art in Venice Forum was born from the necessity to analyze the absence of many African countries at the 57th Venice Biennale. Out of 54 countries, only 7 have a national pavilion.

The forum will take place during the opening days of the Venice Biennale at Hotel Monaco and it will be held in two auditoriums, one for institutional talks, and one for artists talks.

Panelists include: Reem Fadda, who curated last year’s Marrakech Biennale and is now curating the first exhibition of the Palestinian Museum; Azu Nwagbogu, founder of Lagos Photo Festival; Zoe Whitley, curator for International Art at Tate Modern in London among others
