The 7th edition of the biennal festival VIVA! Art Action (Sept 25-28, 2019), taking place at Ateliers Jean Brillant, provides the public with an accessible and convivial context in which to encounter performance art in its most striking and avant-garde forms. See the full proramming here.

This year, articule presents artists Kamissa Ma Koïta (Montreal) on September 26, and Nezaket Ekici (Berlin) on September 27.

Kamissa Ma Koïta is a trans-activist and an Afro-descendant of Malian origin. Born in Quebec City, he grew up in Montreal. He completed a Bachelor’s Degree in Visual and Media Arts at the Université du Québec à Montréal (2015) and is involved in various artist-run centres in Montreal. From a queer and decolonial perspective, he questions the vectors of social domination, focusing more particularly on the condition of subaltern groups. His performative work has been presented at Skol (2017), La Centrale (2017), Dare-Dare (2018) and the UQAM Gallery (2018). Kamissa has also presented his work in several galleries including Centre Never Apart (2019) and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (2018).
