Aude Christel Mgba

Curator and Art historian

Aude Christel Mgba (b.1991, Cameroon) is an independent curator and art historian based between Cameroon and the Netherlands.

Aude engages with decoloniality through research projects and the creation of platforms that aim to transcribe, translate, and embody ancestral knowledge. Her curatorial experiences include collaborations that question forms of making and showing art that tend to be centred between art institutions and art workers. She is more interested in collaboration that expands beyond those spaces to embrace different communities.

In 2017, Aude worked as an assistant curator for the SUD2017, an international triennial of art in the public space, organized by doual’art, a centre for contemporary art, in the city of Douala. From 2019 to 2022 she was co-curator of sonsbeek20->24, an international exhibition in the city of Arnhem. Aude was the curator of the 2021 project of ART X LAGOS. Together with Bruno Alves de Almeida, she will be the artistic director of Luleå 2024.
