Cheikh Ndiaye is included in the group exhibition ‘Global (e) Resistance’ at the Centre Pompidou in Paris. ‘Global (e) Resistance’ explores activism through artistic practices in the current world. Artists have been actively resisting and voicing their thoughts on inequality and oppression including political struggles, post-colonial issues, gender-related issues and environmental concerns. Through art, they propose strategies and alternatives as a response to the struggles in the present moment. The exhibition presents works acquired over the last decade by artists from the ”Global South” (Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Latin America), who aim to transform the way we look at the world. ”The 'Global (e) Resistance' exhibition running at Centre Pompidou displays over sixty artists from Africa, Middle East, Asia, and Latin America for a dive into resistance: resistance against racism, resistance against sexism, resistance against capitalism, despotism. Centre Pompidou gives the floor to committed artists from southern countries in a great exhibition called 'Global (e) Resistance', a wonderful display highlighting works purchased by the museum over the past decade. The exhibition tells us about life choices – even though different – leading to the same will of fighting against injustices.” -Sortir a Paris The list of participating artists include: Georges Adéagbo , Halil Altindere , Jonathas de Andrade , Malala Andrialavidrazana , Iván Argote , Kader Attia , Marcos Avila Forero , Omar Ba , Sammy Baloji , Yto Barrada , Taysir Batniji , Guy Ben-Ner , Lotfi Benyelles , M’Barek Bouhchichi , Jan Brykczynski , Chen Chieh-Jen , Chim Pom , Liu Chuang , Song Dong , LaToya Ruby Frazier , Coco Fusco et Guillermo Gómez-Peña , Meschac Gaba , Renée Green , Hazem Harb , Mohssin Harraki , Susan Hefuna , Anna Hulačová , Nadia Kaabi-Linke , Katia Kameli , Bouchra Khalili , Kiluanji Kia Henda , Jems Koko Bi , David Koloane , Abdoulaye Konaté , Marcia Kure , Hayoun Kwon , Firenze Lai , Goddy Leye , Ibrahim Mahama , Jawad Al Malhi , Teresa Margolles , Paulo Nazareth , Cheikh Ndiaye , Otobong Nkanga , Sara Ouhaddou , Akosua Adoma Owusu , Pratchaya Phinthong , The Propeller Group , Khalil Rabah , Younès Rahmoun , Zineb Sedira , Penny Siopsis , Mikhael Subotzky , Patrick Waterhouse , Evelyn Taocheng Wang , Barthélémy Toguo , Thu Van Tran , Kemang Wa Lehulere , Hajra Waheed , Sue Williamson , Ming Wong , Yin Xiuzhen , Billie Zangewa Opening on July 29, 2020, the exhibition will be on view through January 4, 2021.
