Farook Sfaxi is a graphic designer, illustrator and visual art lover
“Curatorial work is the closest to where the magic happen and where the stories can be told. It’s a work in the shadows that brings to light the art to public. Art can connect people, expose issues or be the celebration of a heritage and a renewal of a collective memory. Curatorial work orchestrates all of that and magnifies it.”
Contemporary art in context, in public spaces, and out of the museum and galleries, offers a different dynamic and a different language it’s a different battle making art open to a wider audience more diverse and out of the usual cultural elite. The importance of such a fact came after the experience of being a site guide during the first edition of “INTERFERENCE light art project” in 2016.
