Afscheid van Okwui Enwezor

Gepubliceerd op: 15 March 2019

De vooraanstaande curator Okwui Enwezor is op 55-jarige leeftijd overleden. Enwezor vocht de voorbije jaren een moeizame strijd met kanker, en moest vorig jaar nog afstand nemen van zijn positie als directeur van Haus der Kunst in München.

Okwui Enwezor was een van de meest belangwekkende curatoren van zijn generatie, en stond aan het roer van onder andere de 56ste Biënnale van Venetië (2015), de Triënnale in Palais de Tokyo (2012), de Gwangju Biënnale (2008) en Documenta 11 (2002). Die laatste werd geprezen als de eerste multiculturele, postkoloniale editie die een waarlijk internationale blik op de (kunst)wereld wist te werpen.

Enwezor werd geboren in 1963 in Calabar, Nigeria, en verhuisde nadien naar New York waar hij politieke wetenschappen studeerde. Zijn eerste tentoonstellingen cureerde hij aan het begin van de jaren '90.

De vooraanstaande curator Okwui Enwezor is op 55-jarige leeftijd overleden. Enwezor vocht de voorbije jaren een moeizame strijd met kanker, en moest vorig jaar nog afstand nemen van zijn positie als directeur van Haus der Kunst in München.

Okwui Enwezor was een van de meest belangwekkende curatoren van zijn generatie, en stond aan het roer van onder andere de 56ste Biënnale van Venetië (2015), de Triënnale in Palais de Tokyo (2012), de Gwangju Biënnale (2008) en Documenta 11 (2002). Die laatste werd geprezen als de eerste multiculturele, postkoloniale editie die een waarlijk internationale blik op de (kunst)wereld wist te werpen.

Enwezor werd geboren in 1963 in Calabar, Nigeria, en verhuisde nadien naar New York waar hij politieke wetenschappen studeerde. Zijn eerste tentoonstellingen cureerde hij aan het begin van de jaren '90.

De gepatineerde bronzen sculptuur Tilted Head (2015-2018) van de Nederlandse kunstenaar Mark Manders (1968) werd recent onthuld op Doris C. Freedman Plaza, aan de ingang tot Central Park, New York City. Het kunstwerk is gerealiseerd in samenwerking met de non-profit kunstorganisatie Public Art Fund, mede ondersteund door Zeno X Gallery (Antwerpen) and Tanya Bonakdar Gallery (New York/Los Angeles). Tilted Head is het grootste unieke in brons gegoten beeld van de kunstenaar tot op heden, en is nog te zien tot 1 september 2019.

Deze video geeft u een zicht op het voorafgaande creatieproces.

Monika Szewczyk is benoemd als nieuwe directeur van De Appel in Amsterdam. In het persbericht verklaart ze: “Het is een tijd van institutionele vernieuwing bij De Appel en ik ben verheugd om met het team en het bestuur samen te werken om deze kans optimaal te benutten. We kunnen putten uit de wijsheid van kunstenaars, dichters, critici, constructivisten, politici, schoonheidsspecialisten, economen, ondernemers, historici, futuristen en de wereldwijde basis van De Appel. Zo zal mijn leidende vraag zijn hoe we onze collectieve verlangens opnieuw kunnen definiëren door middel van kunst om zo samen onze gedeelde ruimtes vorm te geven: ons huis, onze buurt, ons Amsterdam, ons idee van ontwikkeling.” 

Szewczyk trad recent nog op als curator van documenta 14: Learning from Athens, en werkte vier jaar als hoofd publicaties bij Witte de With en als hoofddocent aan het Piet Zwart Instituut in Rotterdam. Voordien heeft ze uitgebreide ervaring opgebouwd als curator en theoretica. Monika Szewczyk, die werd geboren in Polen en opgroeide in Canada, volgt nu Niels Van Tomme (huidig directeur Argos in Brussel) op bij De Appel in Amsterdam.
