    Curating as Collaborative Practice 2/ DREAM CITY [FR]

    Within On focus: Communal Knowledge at Large, a laboratory of three events taking place at key intervals took on a workshop approach. Entitled, Curating as a Collaborative Practice, the laboratory provided ESAV students, local practitioners and other members of the public with the opportunity to observe, debate, and participate in a dialogue around three case studies, which take as a source their immediate context and the communities that inhabit them.

    Meeting an urgency to reclaim public spaces confined by officialdom and its institutions, Dream City is a bi-annual contemporary arts festival in the medina of Tunis, Tunisia, that aims to reimagine the city. Co-founder of arts association, L’art Rue, and director of the festival, SOFIANE OUISSI and artistic director JAN GOOSSENS, lead a session delving into the festival’s concept and materialisation.

    ELVIRA DYANGANI OSE (1-54 Forum Programme Curator) gives insights into this year’s 1-54 Forum programme.

    1-54 Forum: Context as Source [FR + EN]

    What are the fundamental mechanisms that establish curatorial remits or exhibition-making as a tool to read a context? How do curators and artists predominantly working on the edges or outside of a determined territory or arena successfully build the connections with art and non-art audiences? CHRISTINE EYENE (Art Historian, Critic and Curator of the Biennale Internationale de Casablanca), SOFIANE OUISSI (Co-Founder of L’art Rue and director of Dream City) JAN GOOSSENS (Artistic Director, Festival de Marseille and Dream City), and MARIE-ANN YEMSI (Art Consultant and Curator) in conversation with ELVIRA DYANGANI OSE.

    Curating as Collaborative Practice 1/ THE FICTIONAL MARRAKECH BIENNALE [EN + FR]

    Within On focus: Communal Knowledge at Large, a laboratory of three events taking place at key intervals took on a workshop approach. Entitled, Curating as a Collaborative Practice, the laboratory provided ESAV students, local practitioners and other members of the public with the opportunity to observe, debate, and participate in a dialogue around three case studies, which take as a source their immediate context and the communities that inhabit them.

    A speculative exhibition history exploring the performative attempt behind the formulation of The Fictional Biennale, an artist-driven project which questions the role and agency of artists in the absence of particular platforms of display. This laboratory takes as starting point YOUNESS ATBANE, M’BAREK BOUHCHICHI and SIMOHAMMED FETTAKA’s inquiry and the ghostly imaginary their project generated, to expand their ideas and unveiled some of the fictional propositions they included in the ‘catalogue’ it archived in 2018. They will be joined by FLORENCE DEVEREUX, member of Mint Works and applicant to The Fictional Biennial.

    In partnership with ESAV, l'École Supérieure des Arts Visuels de Marrakech. Our partnership with ESAV commenced with the inaugural Marrakech edition in 2018.
