Melvin Edwards features in 'Sarah Maldorer: Tricontonental'

Palais de Tokyo, Paris, France

'Sarah Maldoror: Tricontinental Cinema' is the first exhibition dedicated to the work of French filmmaker, Sarah Maldoror (1929-2020). The exhibition focusses on the artist's cinematographic work and her involvement with theatre, poetry and politics. Maldoror was a pioneer of African cinema, and was involved in the liberation movements of Portuguese colonies as well as the work of the poets of the Francophone Caribbean.

This presentation explores the influence of the cities in which Maldoror lived, and the conversations that the filmmaker instigated with intellectual, artistic and political figures including Mário Pinto de Andrade, Aimé Césaire, Marguerite Duras, Jean Genet, Chris Marker and William Klein. The exhibition also seeks to create new dialogues with contemporary artists, including: Mathieu Kleyebe Abonnenc, Melvin Edwards, Ana Mercedes Hoyos, Kapwani Kiwanga, Maya Mihindou, Chloé Quenum, Maud Sulter and Anna Tje.
