Kehinde Wiley


For his first collaboration with a major UK gallery, The National Gallery, Wiley will depart from portraiture to explore artistic conventions and modes of representation in the European landscape tradition through the media of film and painting. Wiley’s first film installation, Narrenschiff (2017), was a contemporary response to the Ship of Fools theme, popular in European culture from the late 15th century. It featured a group of young Black men at sea, struggling to reach the land – a metaphor for both historical and contemporary histories of migration and social dislocation. Building on these themes at the National Gallery, Wiley will explore European Romanticism and its focus on epic scenes of oceans and mountains, and humankind’s relationship with nature. The film included in this project will feature Black Londoners that Wiley met and cast for the film on the streets around the National Gallery.

THE POWER OF MY HANDS, Afrique(s) : artistes femmes – Group show

As part of the Saison Africa2020, Suzana Sousa, independent curator based in Luanda, Angola and Odile Burluraux, curator at the au Musée d’Art Moderne de Paris, bring together at MAM a set of works by sixteen female artists from several English-speaking African countries, and Portuguese speakers, or from the diaspora, offering a glimpse of a contemporary African art scene little presented in France. The Power of My Hands, through the creations presented - painting, pottery, photography, video, performance, embroidery etc. - takes into account the capacity of the artists to approach, starting from their personal histories, the social questions which determine the female condition.

Iván Navarro

RIO DE SANGRE – installation

“Río de sangre” is an installation created by Ivan Navarro, located on the banks of the Mapocho river in Chile. Made up of an iron tower connected to one of the river’s pathways through a bridge, it creates a peaceful place for meditation in the midst of the urban jungle. Visitors can walk it up, one at a time, and are given a map of Santiago with the streets renamed after various parts of the human body. The installation is an homage to the Desaparecidos, the victims of the dictatorship thrown in the river before and after the Pinochet era.
