Presentation of the curatorial team: Exit Frame
Exit Frame Collective (Adwoa Amoah, Ato Annan, Bernard Akoi-Jackson, Kelvin Haizel and Kwasi Ohene-Ayeh) operates within the surplus of the collision between art and pedagogy. The collective curated the group exhibition of Materials and things (2021) in France and co-organised the 11-day festival Pile au Rendezvous with La Condition Publique as part of Saison Africa2021. In 2020, Exit Frame inaugurated the annual peer-to-peer intensive pedagogical project CritLab, as part of its efforts to broaden the critical intellectual infrastructure of professional art practice in Ghana.
They were invited by artistic director Ibrahim Mahama and are involved in shaping the Biennale as curators of the exhibition, while also developing the public programme.
"For the whole curatorial team, the Biennale is also a learning experience, where we get to know the terrain and see how the local scene complements our own. It's all very new for us, it's a journey we want to experience with everyone who joins us," said Kwasi Ohene-Ayeh, a member of the collective, during his working visit to Ljubljana.
