Kapwani Kiwanga

Kapwani Kiwanga (CA, 1978) is an artist who lives and works in Paris (FR). In her most recent works Kiwanga appears as a scientist, mobilising her knowledge in social sciences to develop research projects. Following a singular methodology, she creates specific protocols she uses as filters to observe culture and its capacity to mutate ; the result can take the form of installations, videos or performances. Kapwani Kiwanga studied anthropology and comparative religions at McGill University (Montreal, CA). She has followed the program La Seine at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris, as well as at Le Fresnoy (a french national center for contemporary art).

Kapwani Kiwanga's works has been exhibited in Centre Georges Pompidou (FR), the Glasgow Center of Contemporary Art (UK), the Museum of Modern art in Dublin (IE), the Bienal Internacional de Arte Contemporáneo de Almeria (ES), Salt Beyoglu in Istanbul (TK), the South London Gallery (UK), the Jeu de Paume in Paris (FR), the Kassel Documentary Film Festival (DE), the Kaleidoscope Arena Rome (IT) and at Paris Photo (FR). Kapwani Kiwanga was The Armory Show's comissioned artist in 2016. Twice nominated for BAFTA, her films have been rewarded in several international festivals. Upcoming solo exhibitions include the Power Plant in Toronto (CA) and Logan Art Centre in Chicago (USA).
