The conversation takes place in front of the installation Indépendance Cha Cha, contextualizing Ângela Ferreira’s most recent artwork. Evoking a specific architecture from the ‘colonial’ centre of Lubumbashi (Democratic Republic of the Congo), Indépendance Cha Cha was conceived on the basis of the artist’s participation in the third edition of the Lubumbashi Biennale (2012/13), to which Ferreira and curator Jürgen Bock were invited by the artistic director of the biennale, Elvira Dyangani Ose. Besides the discussion on Ângela Ferreira’s practice and its resonances in Europe and Africa, Elvira Dyangani Ose will talk about the biennale from the perspective of her curatorial practice on both continents.

Elvira Dyangani Ose lives and works in London. She joined Tate Modern in 2011 as Curator, International Art, supported by Guaranty Trust Bank, taking a leading role in developing Tate’s holdings of art from Africa and its Diaspora and working closely with the Africa Acquisitions Committee. As a curator, she has developed numerous interdisciplinary projects, including Ibrahim El-Salahi. A Visionary Modernist and Across the board, focussing on politics of representation, urban and social imaginaries and the role of artists in processes of history-making.

Ângela Ferreira lives and works in Lisbon. She has presented her work in numerous events, museums and galleries, including Stills (Edinburgh, 2013), Haus der Kulturen der Welt (Berlin, 2012), the Walther Collection (Neu-Ulm, 2011), MACBA (Barcelona, 2009), 28th São Paulo Biennial (2008), Museu Coleção Berardo (2008) and the Portuguese Pavilion at the 52nd Venice Biennial (2007).

Jürgen Bock lives and works in Lisbon. He is the artistic director of Maumaus/Lumiar Cité and has contributed numerous texts to art publi- cations. He has organised seminars, lectures and colloquies and his most recent curatorial projects have been presented at institutions and events such as Museo Reina Sofia (2012), La Criée (2012), Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation (2009) and the Portuguese Pavilion at the 52nd Venice Biennial (2007).

The conversation will be in English and takes place in the context of Ângela Ferreira’s exhibition Indépendance Cha Cha, which runs until 01.06.2014.

This project has been developed in partnership with the EDP Foundation and in collaboration with Africa.Cont. Our thanks also to Culturgest for their kind support during the production of the exhibition.
