First Person Series: Koyo Kouoh

Share

First Person is an intimate video-based series by FNB Art Joburg where artists, curators and gallerists offer personal accounts of their platforms, practice, process, and projects.

In this episode we sit with Koyo Kouoh to discuss When We See Us: A Century of Black Figuration in Painting — a group show featuring more than 200 paintings made by 154 artists from 28 countries. The executive director and chief curator of the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary African Art Kouoh is a prolific cultural producer that describes what she does as being “very much defined by what needs to be done.” A departure informed by love, she walks us through the urgent need for the show.

Event details

The Anglo American art and object collection is a combination of art collected over several decades through four different companies: Anglo American, de Beers Group, Anglo American Platinum and Kumba Iron Ore.

The collection comprises of 3600 works, with around 1000 pieces in the collection on display at the newly commissioned Rosebank offices. Although vast, the collection experienced an acquisition hiatus from the early 2000s until 2021 creating a significant gap in the collection’s representation of contemporary art. The collection now has a dedicated curator, Megan Scott, tasked with its cataloguing and digitisation, opening an exciting new chapter which will see the gradual procurement of significant works that reflect our contemporary South African and African art world.
