Binta Diaw

Binta DIAW (*1995) lives and works in Milan, Italy. The artist graduated from the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera in Milan and the École Supérieure d‘Art et Design in Grenoble.
Often declined in the form of installations of various sizes, Binta Diaw’s plastic research is part of a philosophical reflection on the social phenomena that define our contemporary world, such as migration, the notion of belonging or the question of identity.
By fueling her research through contributions on intersectionality and feminism, Binta Diaw takes us into the exploration of multiple levels of identity; hers as a black woman in a Europeanized world, ours and that of a continuous crossroads of histories and geographies.
Binta Diaw’s recent exhibitions include: Les Filons Géologiques, Palazzo Accursio (Bologna, 2021); Museo Novecento (Firenze, 2021); Dïà s p o r a, Galerie Cécile Fakhoury, (Abidjan, 2021); School of Water-Mediterranea, Young Artists Biennale (San Marino, 2021); I have this memory, it is not my own, Galerie Cécile Fakhoury (Dakar, 2020); Waves Between Us, Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Foundation (Guarene, 2020); Nero Sangue, MAGA Museum (Gallarate, 2020); In Search of Our Ancestor’s Garden (Milan, 2020); Soil is an Inscribed Body, Savvy Contemporary (Berlin, 2019).
