Sessions eKapa 08: December 4 –6, 2008 Cape Town

Contemporary African art – crossing borders to break new grounds

CAPE Africa Platform rounds off its 2008 programme with Sessions eKapa 08, a 3-day discussion and networking session in Cape Town from December 4 – 6. The event reflects back on CAPE’s activities over the past year and looks ahead to CAPE 09, a ground-breaking contemporary African art exhibition to be hosted in Cape Town in May 2009.

The culmination of a research programme that has seen the organisation host exciting sessions in Luanda and Maputo, the event begins on December 4 with a key note address by Rodrigo Bueno of recent São Paulo Art Biennial infamy at the Wash Houses, in Oranjezicht, Cape Town.

Stakeholders and members of the public are then invited to attend presentations and talks that reflect and expand on hot topics at Sessions Maputo and Sessions Luanda including the “state of contemporary African art,” “networks without borders,” curating African arts and more. Speakers on the day range from Angolan artist “Etona” Antonio Tomas Ana and philosopher Patricio Batsikama, to researcher and artist Monica Banyana Selelo (Botswana) and South African curator Loyiso Qanya, curator and artist Thembinkosi Goniwe and artist and curator Thomas Mulcaire.

Day 2 begins with in-situ, in-depth workshops on proposals for CAPE 09 with multi-disciplinary teams of CAPE young curators and select stakeholders, artists and writers. Public delegates join the action at 2pm for a bus tour to all main CAPE 09 sites and for workshop presentations on CAPE 09. The day ends on a high note with a party at the Kimberley Hotel, Roeland Street, Cape Town.

Day 3 has a public programme that celebrates the launch and re-naming of the Young Creatives Programme at the steps of St. George’s Cathedral, Wale Street, Cape Town at 11am with a performance by participants in CAPE’s emerging creatives programme. Acclaimed choreographer Jay Pather addresses the audience on the subject at CAPE’s lab space on 8 Spin Street at 12 noon.

Tickets are available from CAPE Africa Platform’s office from 1 December onwards for R75 (or R45 for students) and include coffee/tea and lunch on the first day as well as bus transport on the second day.
