Annex Residency Programme

The Annex Residency Programme and resident artist Emilio Moreno are pleased to invite you to ENTANGLED IN STORIES: an evening of storytelling with José Manuel de Prada-Samper & Helena Cuesta on WEDNESDAY 22 AUGUST, 2012, 5:45 for 6PM at THE ANNEX BUILDING, GOVERNMENT AVE., COMPANY GARDENS, CAPE TOWN

José Manuel de Prada-Samper (Salamanca, Spain) studied at the University of Barcelona, Columbia University (NY), and the University of Alcalá de Henares with a thesis about the lion stories of the /Xam San. He is currently working in South Africa as a post-doctoral research fellow at the Centre for Curating the Archive at the University of Cape Town's Hiddingh campus. Helena Cuesta (Valladolid, Spain) studied History of Art and Medieval History at the university in her home town because, in her own words, 'I like to see things from different points of view and also, because I like to look into the past to better understand the present and contribute to build a better future.' For more information about José and Helena’s background and activities go to the website.

Emilio Moreno (Ávila, Spain), the first artist in residence of the Annex Residency Programme, is interested in how the notion of history is constructed and the porousness between history/stories. See more information about Emilio's practice and his research process in South Africa here.

The Annex Residency Programme is a new initiative stationed at the Annex building next to the South African National Gallery, Cape Town. Working in close collaboration with the Iziko Museums Education & Public Programming as well as Art Collections, the programme seeks to make unlikely connections between people, places and practices.
