CAPC - Bordeaux

After his remarkable participation in the last Venice Biennale and his recent solo exhibitions at the New Museum in New York, at the Haus der Kunst in Munich and soon at the MOCA in Toronto, Kapwani Kiwanga will invest the great nave of the Capc in 2023 for an original project conceived in relation to the double history of the place, the colonial history until the end of the 19th century, and the history of art from the beginning of the 1970s.


In the context of the celebration of the Capc's fiftieth anniversary, this invitation was obvious, as her practice is rooted in the necessary re-evaluation of colonial history, but also in a marked interest in the history of minimal forms. Considered one of the most important artists of her generation, Kiwanga's work deals with power asymmetries by bringing together historical narratives, contemporary realities, archives and possible futures. She situates her work in a plurality of histories in order to better deconstruct the narratives that underlie contemporary geopolitics.
