The Cité internationale des arts is honoured to host at its venue in the Marais ENTRELACS (INTERLACED), an event focused on Africa and its diasporas.
The event was conceived and is supported by friends and family, colleagues and admirers of Dominique Malaquais, who passed away in October 2021. An art historian and political scientist, Dominique dedicated her life and work to African worlds, and in particular to urban cultures and contemporary art scenes. The event takes its title from one of Dominique’s last works, soon to be published.
On June 3, 4 and 5, ENTRELACS (INTERLACED) brought together some sixty researchers and artists who came to actively share with the public their views on four concerns essential to Dominique's life, work and thought: art, violence and the Capitalocene; cities in flux and urban imaginaries; curatorial practices; and writings of history through a program of round-tables and performances.
On this occasion was also inaugurated the eponymous exhibition which presents, until July 13th, 2022, the interlaced practices of curators and artists – who have generously contributed to this project – interrogating various forms of power, speculating about alternative futures.
Collaboration was vital to Dominique's work. In that spirit, ENTRELACS (INTERLACED) is conceived by a collective composed of Bénédicte Alliot, Lisa Brittan, Kadiatou Diallo, Jean-Christophe Lanquetin, Bart Legum, Elisabeth Malaquais, Julie Peghini, Zahia Rahmani, and Gary Van Wyk, joined by the many artists and scholars devoting their work and their time to this event.
The program is available right HERE!
