PASS in Paris: Christine Eyene

The interdisciplinary work of art historian, critic and curator Christine Eyene brings together stories of contemporary African art, the lives of artists in exile during apartheid (George Hallett, Dumile Feni and others), Black Arts happenings in Britain through the 1980s, and studies of gender representation in the arts. Since 2002 she has also been visual arts co-editor of Africultures.

Her most recent exhibition: All Of Us Have A Sense Of Rhythm demonstrated her mixtape of modes including sculptures by Zak Ové, sound works by Larry Achiampong that encounter Ghanaian Highlife, and videos by Younès Baba-Ali and Anna Raimondo which explore non-musical rhythmic patterns using repetitive gesture and voice.

To keep track of Christine’s movements visit, at our PASS POP-UP in Paris she will be joined by Blaise Ndjehoya to discuss bikutsi music.
