MONTRESSO* ART SPACE
25.02 – 31.03.2019
IN-DISCIPLINE is a travelling program that supports creation and diffusion of visual artists first triennial phase in Africa and then in other regions of the world. Its particularity is to rely on one hand on in a Morocco and in particular on the city of Marrakech as a platform of international visibility, and on the other hand on structures strongly implicated in the promotion of arts and culture in the chosen countries. The strength of this pilot phase is to combine research and laboratory time with moments of direct contact with professionals and with the international art market.
IN-DISCIPLINE is joined by a major figure of contemporary African art, in the person of Yacouba Konaté, curator, writer, art critic, professor of philosophy and curating. Among his many commitments, this fervent defender and connoisseur of contemporary African and Ivorian creation is a member of the Academy of Arts, Sciences and Cultures of Africa and Diasporas of Abidjan, director of the Rotonde des Arts Contemporains in the Nour-al-Hayat Gallery, Plateau, Abidjan. Like no other, he will accompany the dual approach of the program IN-DISCIPLINE, which beyond supporting a selection of young artists, aims to contribute to the development of the art market in Africa.
In-Discipline will be unveiled as part of the 1-54 contemporary art fair in February 2019 at the Montresso* Art Space.
Open days Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd February 2019.
