Intersections – Within the Global South includes a new generation of artists from the “Global South” who seek to promote, through their work, a comprehensive reflection of the most relevant socio-historical issues experienced in their geographical territories. The exhibition conceptually and artistically explores the multiple affinities inherent in the historical, social and political context of the “Global South” and frames the exhibition within the sphere of social art that encourages public awareness on pressing themes.
Intersections, is presented by Banco Económico in partnership with THIS IS NOT A WHITE CUBE, Angola, and Gallery MOMO, South Africa. The exhibition is curated by Sónia Ribeiro and Graça Rodrigues and critically explores the mechanisms of the creation of western artistic canons, favouring, through their curatorial direction, the presentation of works that materially and technically depart from the most conventional media and artistic genres, through an almost total absence of stricto sensu painting.
