1-54 Forum London 14 - 17 October 2021 The Virtual Salon The digital, the virtual, the augmented, the real, the imagined; A.F.K versus I.R.L—the lexicon around our digital world both perplexes and invigorates ‘our’ collective consciousness. In the western world, debates of African digitality often summon references to ‘digital divides’ and social inequity. The reality, in many instances, contrarily exhibits a much more complex picture. Internet diffusion across the continent has proliferated at warp speed across the last decade, enabling an entirely new generation of artists and makers to explore the possibilities of digitality in motion. Here, artists have produced a multitude of virtual forms and artefacts; NFTs, memes, and Artificial Intelligence (AI). Within these interstitial spaces, creative practitioners have found tools that have enabled new forms of expression—an agency that enables independently-driven storytelling techniques that embody queer, feminist alter-narratives to breathe in open space. Princess Alia al-Senussi, PhD (Cultural strategist, writer, patron, public speaker and academic) leads a discussion with Osinachi (Artist), Sumayya Vally (Principal Architect, Counterspace), Gemma Rolls-Bentley (Chief Curator, Avant Arte) and Tinie Tempah (Rapper and Singer). ww.1-54.com

    1-54 Forum London 2021 | The Walk Towards the Future (French)

    1:09:21

    1-54 Forum London 2021 14 - 17 October The Walk Towards the Future (French) This open-ended conversation explores the concept of artist as philanthropist; the artist as the maker and progenitor of institutions, and the diverse ways that they approach this aspect of their practice. Is institutionalism a form of artistic practice? Or rather, is it a by-product of a hollowed vacuum that requires re-imagining, regenerating? How do these engines fuel a vision for a collective future? How do we sustain them and enliven them with the potential tools required to sustain their existence? Dr. Omar Kholeif leads a conversation with artists Michael Armitage, Bill Kouélany, and Otobong Nkanga. In partnership with Phaidon to celebrate the publication of 'African Artists.'

    1-54 VIP Webinar | Secondary market for contemporary African Art 2020/2021

    46:04

    1-54 VIP Webinar | Secondary market for contemporary African Art 2020/2021 7 October 2021 Drawing from Corrigall & Co’s latest report, Mary Corrigall will discuss the status of the secondary market for contemporary African art. The findings are based on an analysis of figures from sales that have taken place from January 2020 to June 2021.   As the focus is on gauging the temperature of the African art market only auctions dedicated to the sale of African art were under the microscope. These auctions were conducted in Africa and Europe by the following auction houses; Sotheby's (London), Bonhams (London, New York), Artcurial (Paris, Marrakesh, Piasa (Paris), Strauss & Co (Cape Town, Joburg), Aspire Art Auctions (Cape Town, Joburg), Compagnie Marocaine des Oeuvres et Objets d'Art (Casablanca) and Arthouse (Lagos). Over 9000 lots were analysed. Corrigall will introduce some of the important findings that relate to the contemporary works. Under discussion will be which countries in the African art ecosystem claim the market share for the sale of contemporary works at auction, as well as how the value and what is valued differs in markets in Africa and Europe. A few case studies will be included. For more information on the Contemporary African Art Auctions 2020/2021 visit: https://www.corrigall.org/contemporaryartauctions2020 Corrigall & Co is a Cape Town-based art research consultancy with a focus on mapping art ecosystems in contemporary art from the African continent.
