Tila Likunzi

27 FEB 2021 – 26 MAY 2021

Bag Factory is delighted to announce that Tila Likunzi (Angola) will undertake a fully-funded residency at the Bag Factory from 27 Feb - 26 May 2021. This residency is part of Art Connection Africa, a cooperation of KfW Stiftung and Triangle Network to foster visual art exchanges, capacity building and informal learning activities within Sub-Sahara Africa.

Tila Likunzi (*1982 in Luanda, Angola) is an independent art curator and researcher since 2017. She worked for many years as a translator, interpreter, proof-reader and copywriter before joining the Arts. In addition to curating Angolan contemporary art both independently and for Jahmek Contemporary Art, she closely follows ideological currents of African origin and descent and is dedicated to the independent study of contemporary African philosophy and theology, looking into the art and thinking behind Angolan rituals, customs and religious beliefs. She is a co-founder of Lugânzi – The Living Archive. Her upcoming research at Bag Factory will focus on contemporary African photography and photographers.
