KOYO KOUOH is an internationally renowned, Dakar-based curator and educator who will spend two weeks as a scholar-in-residence at Pitt later this month and is deeply involved in the Carnegie International. Kouoh is the founding artistic director of RAW Material Company, a center for art, knowledge and society in Dakar, Senegal. As an independent curator, she has contributed to several major international exhibitions, including documenta 12 (2007) and 13 (2012); most recently, she curated the 2016 EVA International exhibition (Ireland's biennial). As part of her plans for the 57th Carnegie International exhibition (Oct. 2018-Mar. 2019), curator Ingrid Schaffner has invited Kouoh to create an exhibition-within-an-exhibition, entitled Dig Where You Stand, which will be drawn from from Carnegie Museum of Art's permanent collection of African and other "non-western" artworks and artifacts.
