The curatorial approach of Oulimata Gueye, Senegalese and French critic and exhibition curator, is based on research work which lies at the intersection of digital sciences and technologies, contemporary art, popular cultures, literatures and micro-politics. From 1998 to 2002 she was part of the team that founded Batofar, co-organizing numerous international multidisciplinary art events dedicated to contemporary art and to electronic and urban cultures. From 2003 to 2011, she co-directed the nomad festival Infamous carousel (Centre Pompidou, Palais de Tokyo, Jeu de Paume, Les Instants Chavirés, the Point Éphémère) dedicated to performance, experimental sound practices and to media arts. Since 2010 she has been studying the impact of digital technologies on popular urban cultures and artistic practices in Africa. Among her areas of investigation she has developed a research project around the links between fiction and digital cultures called Africa sf (2011-2017). Africa sf defends the idea that, marked by intense economic, technological, political, social and aesthetic upheavals, the African continent’s entry into the internet era has been conducive to the development of techno-scientific imagination, and that science fiction is the genre best able to provide an account of this interface and interactions between the present, projections into the future and foundational myths. In 2018 and 2019, in partnership with curator Marie Lechner and the Gaîté lyrique, she developed a cycle of performances, encounters and debates: Afrocyberféminismes. Following in the wake of the literature of Afro-American science fiction author Octavia E. Butler, this cycle revisited the history of digital technologies starting with the intersection of cyber-feminism, afro-feminism and queer cultures. A website was created, and continues to function as a resource center. Between 2018 and 2019 she was also co-curator of Digital Imaginaries, a vast project of encounters and exhibitions around digital imagination in Africa, conceived in collaboration with a number of institutions: Kër Thiossane, Dakar: Utopies non Alignées - WAM and Fakugesi, Johannesburg: Prémonition and also the at the ZKM, Karlsruhe: Africas in Production. She co-edited Digital Imaginaries, African positions beyond binaries (ZKM-Kerber, 2021); and is the curator of the exhibition UFA, Université des Futurs Africains, at the Lieu Unique (spring of 2021), as part of the Africa 2020 season.
