Calling the Body to attention, is former Guest Projects Digital Resident Yewande YoYo Odunubi’s first solo exhibition. It is a gesture towards (re)centring and (re)claiming the body as an embodied site of archive, communication and imaginings. Sitting on a moment of pause, it reflects on what might constitute a poetics of the body, and the role movement performs as a process and language for enlivening threads of inquiry.
Applications are now open for the Access ART X Prize. The Prize awards early-career artists from Africa and its Diaspora with opportunities to develop their practices, with the intention of setting them up for the highest levels of success on the global stage. Formerly open only to Nigerian emerging artists, The 2022/3 edition has evolved to include an additional award in collaboration with Guest Artists Space Foundation that is open to emerging artists from all of Africa and its Diaspora, in a bid to buttress sustainable careers for a wider range of artists.
Tate Curatorial Assistant Hannah Marsh joins Baff Akoto for a conversation exploring themes of self, movement and memory in the context of migration and identity; concepts that are critical to both their practices.
Artist and researcher Chiizii has launched an interdisciplinary online research archive and multi-sited experiential teaching tool designed to educate and encourage conversation around pre and post-colonial Igbo diets.
Guest Projects Digital is excited to announce Chiizii as the recipient of a new pilot Digital Research Residency. The initiative was conceived with the intention of providing an emerging, UK based African and/or Caribbean diaspora curator or artist, with an opportunity to lead a collaborative research project investigating the intersection of art and design, ecology and food or migration and identity.
