What Exhibitions to See in London Now

I am planning a weekend in London in a few weeks and am already thinking about the exhibitions I will see there. I have always found London very innovative when it comes to museum practices and curation and now that I am not living there anymore, I am looking forward to check the new things out. The first on my list is Staging Jackson Pollock at the Whitechapel Gallery. 2018 marked the 60th anniversary of Pollock’s premiere in the UK : a touring show arrived at the Whitechapel Gallery in 1958. It was beautifully designed by Trevor Dannatt who transformed…

Moving Back to Europe: What Job to Look For?

I currently work as a project manager in a company based in Cape Town, which creates educational, immersive experiences, using interactive technologies and human-centered design for museums, heritage sites, visitor attractions or corporate spaces. But, after a year in South Africa, I am now planning my return to Europe. I will be back in Paris at the beginning of December. Part of this change means quitting my current job and finding a new one in Europe. It’s a little bit sad, I have to admit. My current job has been my first ‘real’ job after university and I have enjoyed it. However,…

21 YEARS: Making Histories with South African Fashion Week @ Zeitz MOCAA, Cape Town

Last night, I had the chance to be invited to the opening night of the exhibition 21 YEARS: Making Histories with South African Fashion Week @ Zeitz MOCAA in Cape Town. I was thrilled as it is the first ever fashion exhibition in a South African museum. Fashion is finally entering the institution. This first event, which for sure will be followed by several others, marks the beginning of an exciting journey. South African and more largely, African fashion will finally be historized and historicized, collected and archived, studied and exhibited. As Erica de Greef, curator of the exhibition, expressed…

What are the exhibitions to see in Paris in December 2018?

I will be in Paris in December and I am starting to check what exhibitions there will be in the city this winter. My passion for exhibitions brought me to the job I do today. Going back to a city like Paris is very exciting: there’s more exhibitions that there’s time to see. However, in my memories, Paris’ exhibition scene is amazing content-wise, it is not design-wise, the exhibitions being mostly traditional looking, compared, for instance, to a city like London. Plus, the art scene exhibitions is very important, which is amazing but gives less space to history and science…

Lady’s Back [Project. moment 0]

Recently, I have been thinking about starting a new personal project. Working as a project manager in an exhibition-design company is fulfilling in a lot of ways but I still feel the need to be creative in my own personal way. I miss experiencing the creative process. Plus, I need a platform to express my thoughts, feelings and impressions. As a starting point, I went back to the videos I made for my master project while studying at London College of Fashion at the end of 2016. One in particular: Lady. I felt that, somehow, I was not done with…
