Panel to celebrate the launch of the new multilingual art magazine focussing on the connections between Afro-Latin America, the Caribbean and Africa.
Guests: Diane Lima, Jota Mombaça, Nabor Jr.
Moderator: Julia Grosse/editor-in-chief C& América Latina
Since 2015 the art magazine Contemporary And (C&) has been addressing the ties between Africa, Afro-Latin America and the Caribbean. In 2016 C& published its first print issue in São Paulo dedicating interviews, features and essays to the Afro-Brazilian art scene. The reality for most Afro-Brazilian artists today is still a state of invisibility within the Brazilian art scene and beyond. It is therefore a timely moment to start creating a whole new digital magazine focusing on these very connections. The new magazine is a constantly growing platform and network hoping to create discourse and discussion. C& América Latina presents features, essays, interviews, news, and opportunities concerned with the many connections, shared experiences and differences in the respective contemporary art scenes.
