A Film about the Dak'Art Bienalle and the experience of a group of college students participating in the exhibition as student curators
In May I will travel to Dakar, Senegal to document the 2012 Dak’Art Biennale. I will be travelling with a group of students who curated a solo show of Liberian artist Doughba Hamilton CarandaMartin at the ArtGallery at the Yonkers Riverfront Library.
We have just learned that Caranda Martin has been accepted as an official selection to exhibit in the Dakar Biennale this year - one of 26 men, 42 total artists globally. In addition, our team is working with venues in the area to show his work in an independent exhibition to coincide with the biennale, and the students are going to curate this show as well.
I will be creating a film about the Biennale, Doughba, and the students’ experience. You will be able to follow my blog in the process seeing photos and posts along the way. Dak’Art is significant because it is the only event of its kind and a fascinating mix of art, culture, and building bridges between communities.
