Qu'est-ce que Foundation for Contemporary Art-Ghana (FCA) ?
Foundation for Contemporary Art–Ghana est un réseau artistique crée en 2004 comme plateforme de soutien a la présentation critique, l’échange de savoir, et la promotion de l’art contemporain au Ghana. FCA offre les ressources nécessaires a l’essor créatif et intellectuel des artistes — par l’intermédiaire d’expositions, de séminaires, d’ateliers, de présentations et résidences d’artistes, ainsi que des publications.

The Curatorial Intensive was made possible in part by grants from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, the Ford Foundation, the Hartfield Foundation, the Institut Français, and by generous contributions from Mercedes Vilardell and ICI’s Leadership Council, the ICI Board of Trustees, the ICI Gerrit Lansing Education Fund, and the supporters of ICI’s Access Fund.
