Who is your favorite artist at this moment? And why?
There are so many fantastic artists who are making truly great art at this moment. I’m fascinated by a few older women artists and artists of color getting their dues after many years without recognitions such as Joan Semmel, Frank Bowling or Stanley Whitney.
What are the upcoming artist(s) we need to keep an eye out?
Also here the list could be very long, so many artists please forget me that I mention only a few names: Jenna Gribbon, Paul Sepuya, Carmen Argotte, Zachary Armstrong, Peppi Bottrop, Claire Tabouret.
How do you think the art world will develop the coming years?
I sincerely hope that the worst of the corona is behind us and that the world will quickly recover from the pandemic. At this moment we face a great outburst of creativity worldwide; there are many amazing young and older artists experimenting, commenting, reshaping our ideas. In musea the focus will lie on exhibitions related to identity politics and rewriting the artistic canon. There are many ‘rediscovered’ female artists and artists of color. They will most probably dominate the institutional programs.
