Conceived as a complement to Art Basel (June 15-19, 2011), FOCUS11 showcases galleries and art institutions and features a series of emerging and established artists in a show curated by Christine Eyene. Visitors can expect to see a wide variety of artwork from diverse scenes within the African continent and its Diaspora. The accompanying programme starts with a symposium this year and ranges from performances and artist talks to workshops and guided tours.

Symposium@FOCUS11 (11-12 June) presents two days of interdisciplinary discussions and interactions shortly before the opening of FOCUS11 . The symposium examines the critical role of live performance as an independent branch of performing arts. What roles do live performances play in today’s galleries, public and art spaces?
