Register to attend March Meeting 2023

The 15th edition of Sharjah Art Foundation’s annual March Meeting runs from 9 to 12 March 2023, following close on the heels of the opening of Sharjah Biennial 15 (SB15) on 7 February. Titled The Postcolonial Constellation: Art, Culture, Politics after 1960, the four-day programme will convene artists, curators and art practitioners as well as students from around the world to discuss vital issues revolving around SB15’s overarching theme: Thinking Historically in the Present. March Meeting 2023 (MM 2023) builds on the two previous iterations of the meeting—The Afterlives of the Postcolonial (MM 2022) and Unravelling the Present (MM 2021)—that were similarly conceived as part of the SB15 programming in relationship to the late Okwui Enwezor’s conception of the ‘Postcolonial Constellation’.

The Postcolonial Constellation: Art, Culture, Politics after 1960 examines the forces that have shaped the production and reception of art across the world from 1960 to the present, reconfiguring the cartographies of global modernism and contemporary art. It will offer discursive space to explore artistic, political and cultural positions traversing subalternity and self-determination, First Nation and Indigenous practices, creolisation, hybridity and supranational formations, such as the Black Atlantic, diasporas, exile and statelessness. It will thus constitute a dynamic intersection of artistic, ideological and philosophical perspectives on decolonisation—a field of scholarship originally developed within postcolonial studies.

Join us for March Meeting 2023: The Postcolonial Constellation: Art, Culture, Politics after 1960, taking place from 9 to 12 March 2023 at The Africa Hall, Sharjah.
