Mistura Allison

Mistura Allison is a researcher, curator and art historian. She is the founder of ashikọ, a visually driven research platform inspired by Africa and its Diaspora. Her practice is fuelled by her interest in exploring the plurality of contemporary visual, performative and oral productions transcending in non-western canons. Currently, she serves as Curator and Project Coordinator at Villa Romana in Florence, engaging in transnational artistic practices with a focus in contemporary art and advancing methodologies of decentralised exhibition-making. She is part of the curatorial collective at Archive Ensemble, where she co-curates the program Publishing Practices. She is particularly engaged with research-based artistic practices, thinking through processes of visual storytelling and movement, and how they might help us imagine new futures, and experience a different constellation(s).
