Thad Beal, Artist and Spokeperson for Gondar Art Tank

Thad Beal’s Pecha Kucha presentation focused on Gondar Art Tank, an art and research residency in Gondar, Ethiopia. Located in an 18th century palace, the residency hosts both Ethiopian and international artists and researchers. As Beal notes, “Gondar Art Tank provides a space and new opportunities for the rising generation of Ethiopians to pursue their aesthetic and intellectual interests. Gaining international exposure however remains a challenge. Our program, dedicated to education through cultural exchange, will provide Ethiopian and foreign participants with workshops and seminars and will result in exhibitions.”1
