What people say about me
"J'ai travaillé pendant des années avec Catherine Goffeau qui avait la charge d'administrer la Collection Sindika Dokolo que nous avions créé avec Sindika et Fernando Alvim. Son professionnalisme, sa capacité d'anticipation et sa personnalité toujours avenante ont contribué à faire de cette collection ce qu'elle est devenue. À vrai dire, j'affirme que cette collection n'aurait pas pu exister sans son engagement de tous les instants et sa connaissance personnelle des artistes." Simon Njami
"I met Catherine Goffeau at the first Johannesburg Biennale in South Africa in 1995 where she was organizing the Angolan Participation. I was so impressed by her ability to organise and coordinate that I immediately asked her help on many projects since. She is an excellent problem solver and team builder working both with artists, curators, shipping, customs, logistics and management. Catherine is able to create a calm atmosphere and keep track of every detail under stress. Being able to translate the sensitive needs of artists to the structural demands of a project, and vice versa, gives her a rare ability to ensure every project opens on time with a satisfied team." Kendell Geers
"Eu trabalhei com Catherine Goffeau em várias ocasiões desde 2003, o resultado foi sempre profissional e eficaz. Com a Catherine sei que posso sempre contar com uma resposta célere, completa e criativa na abordagem dos desafios que os projectos apresentam. A última exposição em que trabalhamos juntas em 2015 envolveu uma logística complexa entre três países e vários parceiros e não houve um atraso ou qualquer falha." Suzana Sousa
