The Low-Residency MFA in Visual Studies program welcomes gallerist Mariane Ibrahim-Lenhardt. Ibrahim-Lenhardt will be speaking about her Seattle Gallery, her curatorial practice and the artist she represents. This lecture is part of the Low-Residency MFA in Visual Studies Summer intensive Wednesday night lecture series.
Ibrahim-Lenhardt opened her Seattle gallery in 2012. She shows contemporary international artists. In a 2014 article in Ledger Magazine Ibrahim-Lenhardt is quoted as saying that the impetus for initially starting her gallery was to “Show what was not being shown” to reflect ”the multitude of layers in African Art” and also to address the misconceptions that persist in the west around the African continent.
Ibrahim-Lenhardt’s curatorial projects have taken her across the world multiple times. The gallery has participated in several art fairs including: AIPAD. Cape Town Art Fair, The Armory Show, 1-54 Contemporary African Art- New York, The Seattle Art Fair, FNB Joburg Art Fair, and 1-54 Contemporary African Art – London. At the Armory Show in March 2017 Mariane Ibrahim gallery received the Presents Both Prize.
