Neuf 3, Public Art Project in Saint-Denis, Paris, France (through end of summer)
Neuf 3 refers to the Parisian suburb of Saint-Denis, which is home to a largely African community of Paris, also its poorest.
Initiated in Saint-Denis, Neuf 3 involves contemporary African artists - from suburbs of France and Africa- who reflect on African experiences, memories, identities and concerns through expressions in photography, engraving, painting, mixed, media, street art and performance.
Artistic interventions take place in streets, public squares, around train and tram stations aimed at African citizens of Saint-Denis, most of whom are not regular visitors to museums and galleries of Paris. See below for venues.
Neuf 3, curated by Riason Naidoo, is inspired by a project he organized in Cape Town in 2016, AnyGiven Sunday, which took place in the city and its townships, targeting black audiences. Naidoo is former curator of the National Gallery of South Africa and now based in Paris.
