In Conversation with Renny Ramakers
For its eighth edition, N’GOLÁ, the biennial of São Tomé and Príncipe, aims to bring a new concept alive. The curator, Dutch art historian Renny Ramakers, has created a program to strengthen the ties between the small island country in the Atlantic and the African mainland. With C& she talks about how she came into this challenging position, and how she works intuitively to explore the in-between and the beauty at the heart of meaningful social change.
Inventing Your Own Game
In the post-war period, many pioneering Black artists were largely neglected by the Western art world despite their significant contributions, and persevered regardless. In the last ten years Western institutions have been waking up to these artists’ legacies. They are finally curating first retrospectives – and of course the markets have followed suit. In this series we chart their careers, highlighting their artistic evolutions and motivations in relation to the world around them. Multimedia artist Howardena Pindell has consistently defied biases in the New York art world since the 1970s, while also making art that has retained a timeless quality, writes Sabo Kpade.
