Situated in the heart of Dakar’s city centre, Selebe Yoon is a residency and gallery that supports local and international artists. Founded in 2020 by Jennifer Houdrouge, the gallery’s modernist building from 1953 is an iconic example of Dakar’s architectural history. In Wolof, ‘selebe yoon’ means ‘the crossroad,’ the place where different paths intersect. As a site of convergence for interdisciplinary research and practices, Selebe Yoon is supportive of artists’ creative processes and artistic experimentations, and encourages dialogues amongst artists and cultural actors.
