Christian Nyampeta (b. 1981, Kigali; lives in New York, NY) organizes programs, exhibitions, screenings, performances, pedagogical experiments, and publications, which are conceived as hosting structures for collective feeling, cooperative thinking, and mutual action, with the support of and alongside a chorus of fellow artists, institutions, and networks. Recent activities include collective iterations of École du soir at SculptureCenter, New York; at e-flux Film & Video; and at Keleketla! Library alongside other spaces of learning and sites of knowledge production and speculation in Johannesburg. Nyampeta was awarded the Art Prize Future of Europe 2019 at the Museum of Contemporary Art (GfZK), Leipzig, and the European Union Prize at the 12th Bamako Encounters—African Biennial of Photography.
