Ascendant African Art Dealer Mariane Ibrahim's New Chicago Base Brings Her Art To A Greater Public


"After seven years in Seattle, Mariane Ibrahim is moving her much loved space to Chicago


In the spring of 2019, acclaimed curator Okwui Enwezor died from an ongoing battle with cancer. Born in Nigeria, Enwezor served as the first non-European creative director of documenta, the international exhibition of contemporary art held in Kassel, Germany every five years. Though brilliant as a curator and writer, Enwezor’s most integral contributions to the art field often derived from his desire to create global platforms for art and culture, breaking Euro-centric assumptions and encouraging artists to explore multicultural and geographically diverse practices and landscapes."
