With an artistic intervention in the heart of the city, Sislej Xhafa features prominently as a guest artist in this year’s edition of MDE15 - The International Art Encounter of Medellin. One of Columbia’s biggest art events, this year’s edition opens on 6 November and focuses on the theme of Local Stories / Global Practices. Referencing the city’s unique cable car system, Xhafa’s Cartacable project runs messages directly from the people in the Playa de Alpujarra (a location known for civic activity and demonstrations) to the Mayor’s office via cable.

Xhafa is also part of a group show at The Wifredo Lam Center of Contemporary Art in Cuba and has produced a new work Sunshine for the exhibition which opens on 24 November.
