Contemporary And Latin America: You’ve recently completed a residency at Ashara Ekundayo Gallery which ended with your curated show. What did you use the residency for?
Zoe Samudzi: I used this residency to really think through and observe Ashara’s process of institution-building. Before creating her own gallery, she co-founded the Impact Hub Oakland and was the curator of the Omi Gallery space within it. Her work as a cultural strategist and independent curator has been really inspiring to me because she isn’t pushing this often trite and disingenuous doctrine of “diversity and inclusion” that we often encounter in the art world.
