Barcelona-based, Portuguese curator Miguel Amado will present the results of his project as ICI’s 2013 Curatorial Fellow. Amado has been researching African art scenes in order to generate curatorial expertise about the artistic practices in the continent. His work is focused on Portuguese-speaking countries in Africa, as they are currently developing their institutions and markets, thus constituting exemplar case studies. Amado visited Luanda (Angola) and Maputo (Mozambique), among other places, where he assembled documentation about artists and exhibitions. He will address the intellectual framework of the project and will show images and documents that he gathered on his travels.
