A collaboration between the Art Institute of Chicago and A4 Arts Foundation, the exchange sees curators from Cape Town travelling to Chicago, and receiving a reciprocal visit a few months later.

Chicago: 10 September - 17 September (2018)
Cape Town: 26 November - 3 December (2018)


Supported by a McArthur grant, the process reflects on the history of extreme segregation in the cities of Chicago and Cape Town. What mechanisms are being developed in the cultural field to counter the resultant inequity that emerges from this segregation?

Special emphasis is placed on how these conditions relate to economic sustainability/viability for curators and artists working within and/or beyond existing art world models.
