Ibraaz March Newsletter

006 / 31 March 2014

In the build up to the launch of Platform 007 in May, Ibraaz is pleased to present an essay on Algeria's artistic landscape by Sultan Sooud Al-Qassemi and an interview with artist Ayşe Erkmen, both of which relate to 007's focus on the future of arts infrastructures and audiences in North Africa and the Middle East.


As part of our ongoing 006 platform on the archive, we are also pleased to present interviews with Hela Ammar and Parastou Forouhar, as well as projects by Wafaa Bilal and Adelita Husni-Bey. We also publish a conversation with the curator of the 4th Marrakech Biennale, Hicham Khalidi, and recent L'appartement22 resident, Georgia Kotretsos, as well as reviews from London, Bristol and Beirut.
