Inês Valle is an art curator based between Europe and West Africa. She is specialised in non-Western Contemporary Arts, and has a special interest for African, Latin American and Aboriginal contemporary arts,
international social & sustainable art practices and communities.
Believing in the international and interdisciplinary preservation and exchange of ideas she has initiated and participated in several art projects that aim to stimulate an understanding of the conceptual notion of the ‘other’, not to insert or present alternatives to dominant hegemonic narratives but to interrupt, interrogate and investigate the effects and possibilities of the unheard and the omitted ones.
She holds a BA in Visual Arts, specialising in Painting, Photography and Video-documentary and a MA in Curatorial Studies both at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Lisbon. Founder Director of the CERA PROJECT (2016) and co-Founder of FRAT Lab (2018, Nigeria).
She has been collaborating with several organisations across the globe,
including Canberra Contemporary Art (AU), Centro Cultural Belém (PT) and Contemporary Art Museum - Colecção Museu Berardo (PT), National Museum of Lagos (Nigeria).
