Jamila Johnson-Small emanates a magnetic force that captures and surprises as soon as one is in her presence. The written dramaturgy is suddenly raised by the emotion that the artist conveys in that moment, and her performances turn into a space of communion with her mesmerized audience. Text by Vittoria Matarrese
In his multi-layered practice spanning photography, film, installation, sculpture and drawing, Mohamed Bourouissa (born in Blida, Algeria in 1978, lives and works in Gennevilliers, France) addresses systems of power and domination, and questions the circulation of images, ideas and money.

(CURA.30) "... I don’t know… it’s confusing. How much of working as an artist is about someone’s investment in the concept of the artist as a person, and how much is actually about the work?" Ryan McNamara in conversation with Hannah Black
You would be forgiven for thinking that Justin Fitzpatrick believes in the ‘hydraulic view of sexuality’—that uncontrollable desire that builds up inside us like steam, driving our actions which, if it were to be released without restriction, would transform society. Text by Paul Clinton

The valley is for me a place of constant learning and, as an obvious consequence, a place to produce my work and actions: it makes me aware of the possibilities of life, and I am always exploring its limits. I always need to get back to it. It is a model that many can appreciate, simply by sharing it. Fabrice Hyber in conversation with Chiara Parisi

When Deller’s art deals with music, it seems to describe a world I knew well in my teens: a more or less alternative scene, where the itch for independence often went hand in hand with a sense of melancholy and loneliness, of not fitting in, which was also a political statement of nonconformity and rebellion.

(CURA. 28) Enter Paul Sepuya whose art stands like a lighthouse blinking in this storm. Sepuya’s use of his own body in his photographs is both an act of transparency as well as an assertion that his humanity is behind the work, not an algorithm, app or third party. Text by Nikki Darling
