Sakhile&Me is a contemporary art gallery and research space based in Frankfurt, Germany. Founded in 2018 by Sakhile Matlhare and Daniel Hagemeier, Sakhile&Me works with both young and established international artists, curators, and researchers and intentionally prioritizes the African continent and its diasporas with the goal of drawing attention to contextual specificity in and through art – in content, artistic medium, and genre. Sakhile holds a doctoral degree in Sociology from Northwestern University and wrote her dissertation on how contemporary artists work alongside art curators, historians, gallerists and other experts in the gatekeeping process within and beyond the rubric of contemporary African art. Daniel holds a Master's degree in Communications from the University of Sydney. The gallery is committed to building a strong art program that invests in itsartists’ development and encourages audiences to come to a deeper appreciation and understanding of their work.
