Eduardo da Costa is a Curator , drawing on his lifelong involvement with Fine Arts . With an interest in contemporary fine art; both Postcolonial and the Colonial thought and activism and modernism, African and European ontologies act as strategic spines for his work.
By way of comment on his new position, Da Costa offered the following remarks:
“Demif Gallery has very graciously appointed me to expand its reach, encompassing exciting new ground. In addition to the focus on the burgeoning scene for African Artists based on the continent, I have a remit to promote Afropean talent in the UK. I have found and hope mutually to grow in doing so, developing the existing artist lead ethos, that attracted me to this post. My hope is that we shall both enjoy a symbiotic movement to further the passion in our artists.”
