On aime l'art...!! agnès b., Grand Arles Express, Collection Lambert en Avignon, France
from 07/06/17 to 11/05/17

Malick Sidibé, Nuit de Noël, 1965

UN CHOIX D'ÉRIC MEZIL DANS LA COLLECTION AGNÈS B.

La Collection Lambert, Musée d’art contemporain, Avignon, présente une sélection d’œuvres de la collection agnès b. dans le cadre du Grand Arles Express, programme hors les murs des Rencontres Internationales de la Photographie d’Arles. Si des expositions ont déjà fait découvrir certaines œuvres majeures collectionnées depuis plus de trente années par la styliste agnès b., l’idée de réaliser son portrait en miroir aux multiples facettes n’a jamais été réalisée avec cette ampleur. À la fois styliste, réalisatrice d'un film sélectionné à la Mostra de Venise, productrice de films, intimement liée au monde de la musique, agnès b. est également une grande découvreuse d'artistes depuis les années 1980. Elle a ouvert sa galerie en 1983 et déniche des pépites photographiques datant des années 1930 à nos jours. L’exposition s’organise autour de grands artistes qu’elle a souvent collectionnés telle une pionnière, de Kenneth Anger à Jonas Mekas, mais aussi autour de filiations temporelles ou esthétiques. Comme autant de rébus et de contes populaires, ces œuvres dessinent un portrait de cette femme libérée de toute convention. Tout comme Yvon Lambert, agnès b. partage cette fureur de vivre communiquée par les œuvres collectionnées pour être partagées.

AFRICA. Raccontare un mondo, PAC Padiglione d'Arte Contemporanea, Milano, Italia
from 06/27/17 to 09/11/17


With a sub-Saharan overview the exhibition investigates today's African art through the works of 32 contemporary african artists.

The exhibition investigates today's African art, between Westerness and Africanism; crossing political, economical and gender issues; between the influences of the surrounding world and the future of the continent. Will Africa ever be independent from the West? Which are the new challenges? The 32 invited artists will provide a fourfold sub-Saharan overview: After the Independence, Introspection of the Identity, Africa Generation, the Body and Politics of the Distance.

from 04/26/17 to 09/04/17

Les Initiés, un choix d’œuvres de la collection d’art africain de Jean Pigozzi (1989-2009)

Être là, Afrique du Sud, une scène contemporaine
L’Afrique dans la Collection de la Fondation Louis Vuitton


Les Initiés

L’exposition Les Initiés réunit une sélection d’œuvres de quinze artistes emblématiques de la collection d’art
contemporain africain de l’homme d’affaire Jean Pigozzi, présentée pour la première fois à Paris.

Dès 1989, Jean Pigozzi fait appel à André Magnin, qui va arpenter le continent africain pour constituer sa collection, à la rencontre d’artistes vivant et travaillant en Afrique subsaharienne. À une époque qui ne connaît ni téléphone portable, ni internet, il parvient à nouer de véritables liens avec des artistes locaux, dont il dévoile la liberté et l’originalité.

La détermination et l’engagement qui ont présidé à cette collection ont permis la constitution d’un fonds unique, aux partis pris affirmés, qui, dans sa diversité, témoigne de l’un des visages de la création contemporaine en Afrique, de 1989 à 2009.

Éclectique et libre, la collection Pigozzi ne privilégie aucun médium et vise à représenter chaque artiste par
des ensembles conséquents. Elle a révélé une scène jusqu’alors méconnue, lui permettant d’élargir son audience et sa résonnance internationale. Cette collection a ainsi joué un rôle prescripteur indéniable.



Les artistes de l’exposition, tous héritiers de savoirs spirituels, scientifiques et techniques, développent des mondes aux multiples expressions et supports. En ce sens, ce sont des « initiés ».

L’exposition, conçue par la direction artistique de la Fondation Louis Vuitton, a été réalisée en étroite collaboration avec Jean Pigozzi.


Commissaire général : Suzanne Pagé; Conseiller : André Magnin ; Commissaires : Angéline Scherf et Ludovic Delalande ; Scénographie : Marco Palmieri.

L’exposition est prolongée jusqu’au 4 septembre


Trésors de l'islam en Afrique. De Tombouctou à Zanzibar, Institut du Monde Arabe, Paris, France
from 04/14/17 to 07/30/17

De Dakar à Zanzibar, de Tombouctou à Harar, l’Institut du monde arabe met à l’honneur des sociétés fortes de treize siècles d’échanges culturels et spirituels avec le Maghreb et le Moyen- Orient. Archéologie, architecture, patrimoine immatériel, art contemporain... : une première qui réunit sur 1 100 m2 près de 300 œuvres multidisciplinaires pour témoigner de la richesse artistique et culturelle de la pratique de l’islam en Afrique subsaharienne.

Le premier temps du parcours entraîne le visiteur à travers les âges. Car l’islam se diffuse en Afrique subsaharienne dès le VIIIe siècle. Le Sahara devient un espace important d’échanges et de circulation. Grâce à des réseaux commerciaux et de communication, se dessinent trois espaces distincts à l’histoire et aux formes artistiques communes : la Corne de l’Afrique et la vallée du Nil, l’aire swahilie, et l’Afrique de l’Ouest.

Comment cette foi s’est-elle exprimée et s’exprime-t-elle encore? Le deuxième temps de l’exposition nous emmène à la découverte de l’architecture religieuse, des pratiques cultuelles et de la magie. Des vidéos immersives de cérémonies nous plongent au cœur de la spiritualité soufie en Afrique.


© Sebastian Schutyser


La transmission de la culture arabo-musulmane se manifeste aussi dans l’art et l’artisanat. Trésors de l’islam en Afrique s’achève ainsi par une confrontation avec des œuvres fortes, tout en soulignant la circulation des formes et des savoir-faire à travers le continent et leur contribution au rayonnement des cultures musulmanes en Afrique. Boubous brodés, bijoux en argent, amulettes et cuirs touaregs témoignent de la foisonnante créativité des artisans musulmans.

L’écriture, fil rouge de l’exposition, permet la diffusion des textes sacrés. Elle fait aussi l’objet d’un usage magique et atteste des singularités régionales propres à la calligraphie en Afrique.

Tout au long de l’exposition, l’art contemporain est mis à l’honneur pour interroger l’histoire de ces échanges. Des artistes majeurs parmi lesquels Hassan Musa, Abdulaye Konaté, Youssef Limoud et Aïda Muluneh témoignent de l’effervescence actuelle de la scène artistique africaine.



Regarding Africa: Contemporary Art and Afro-Futurism, Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Tel Aviv, Israel
from 12/09/16 to 05/27/17
Musclemen Series, 2012, by Leonce Raphael Agbodjelou


This large-scale group exhibition presents art being made today in, or about, Africa, from an Afro-futurist perspective that challenges traditional divisions: fantasy, imagination and cosmology, usually associated with past mythology, are incarnated into science fiction and futurist representation. The various narratives span between colonialism and its ramifications to a re-examination of the African body, landscape and culture—through utterances that shatter the usual distinction between truth and fiction, between myth and science, between technology and spirituality.

AKAA — Also Known As Africa, Carreau du Temple, Paris, France
from 11/11/16 to 11/13/16
Foire d'art contemporain et de design
Paris du 11 au 13 novembre 2016


Les Rencontres AKAA
L’Invention de l’Authenticité

Classifier. Mettre dans des boîtes. Comparer. Exagérer, rien qu’un peu, les similarités et les différences pour simplifier ce monde, pour parvenir à le comprendre. Un monde bien rangé dans des cases bien conçues, tel est notre point de départ et tel est notre point d’arrivée. Entre les deux il y a l’inconnu, l’autre, l’ailleurs.
Pendant plus de cinq siècles, art et anthropologie se sont entremêlés, pour forger l’objet d’art «authentique» africain, création conditionnée par une quête d’exotisme des pays du Nord.

Aujourd’hui, la notion d’authenticité est encore et toujours un miroir qui reflète nos attentes. Qu’est-ce qu’une œuvre d’art authentique ?

Dans cette première édition des Rencontres AKAA, le panel d’intervenants fait table rase et redéfinit cette notion, à travers la particularité. Nous revenons à la genèse de l’œuvre et explorons le processus créatif des artistes d’aujourd’hui, nous plongeons au cœur de la technique, du medium artistique, des savoir-faire, nous partageons des histoires riches, variées, vraies.

La programmation des Rencontres AKAA est bilingue, et les événements qui auront lieu à l’auditorium du Carreau du Temple sont en accès est libre, mais les places étant limitées, pensez à réserver.

Un regard sur la collection d'agnès b., LAM, Lille, France
from 06/12/15 to 08/23/15

À la suite de la présentation des collections Korine et Max E. Ammann, Philippe Eternod et Jean-David Mermod, Philippe Mons, le LaM présente cet été la collection agnès b.

De nombreuses présentations ont déjà été faites de sa collection de photographies, celle de peintures, dessins et sculptures est tout aussi riche et singulière. L’exposition que le LaM lui consacre aujourd’hui en présente les aspects les plus emblématiques. Elle révèle surtout le regard toujours aux aguets d’agnès b. face à l’émergence des écritures picturales de la fin du XXe siècle et du début du XXIe siècle comme les mouvements contestataires des années 1960-1970, le renouveau du graphisme durant les années 1980-1990, les cultures urbaines des années 1990-2000, jusqu’aux nouvelles formes de la vidéo ou de la performance des années 2000-2010. Et si le thème du portrait est l’un des traits saillants de sa collection, les rapports entre musique et arts plastiques et/ou cinéma et arts plastiques en sont d’autres, de même les notions d’altérité, d’identité, de contre-culture, de temps et de mémoire.

Hommage à Frédéric Bruly Bouabré et Okhai Ojeikere, Palais de Tokyo, Paris, France
from 02/13/14 to 04/29/14

En réaction au fil brûlant de l’actualité, les Alertes sont aussi des hommages aux personnalités brusquement disparues. Frédéric Bruly Bouabré (1923-2014) et Okhai Ojeikere (1930-2014) sont décédés à quelques jours d’intervalle. Ces deux grands « ainés » de l’Afrique ont engagé l’imaginaire de ce continent vers l’art contemporain. Le Palais de Tokyo leur rend hommage.

FREDERIC BRULY BOUABRE (1919-2014)

Frédéric Bruly Bouabré est né en 1919 à Zéprégühé, en Côte d’Ivoire. Penseur, philosophe, chercheur, « rechercheur », pédagogue, prophète, poète, artiste, créateur, encyclopédiste… L’œuvre multiforme de Frédéric Bruly Bouabré trouve son origine dans une vision «céleste » du 11 mars 1948. Il se sent alors investi de la mission de transmettre une pensée universelle au monde et plus particulièrement à son peuple Bété. Auteur de nombreux textes, il invente un alphabet sous forme de pictogrammes pour retranscrire sa langue natale, le bété. Alphabet qui sera publié pour la première fois par Théodore Monod en 1958. C’est par son œuvre graphique qu’il sera révélé sur la scène artistique internationale lorsqu’André Magnin présente quelques un de ses dessins à l’exposition Magiciens de la Terre conçue par Jean-Hubert Martin au Centre Pompidou et à la Grande Halle de la Villette en 1989. Son travail a depuis été présenté dans de très nombreuses expositions en Europe et aux États-Unis.

J.D. OKHAI OJEIKERE (1930-2014)

À l'âge de dix-neuf ans, J.D. Okhai Ojeikere achète un modeste appareil Brownie D sur les conseils d'un voisin qui lui apprend les rudiments de la photographie et son talent lui vaut d'être sollicité par la West Africa Publicity pour laquelle il travaillera à plein temps de 1963 à 1975, date à laquelle il installe son studio " Foto Ojeikere ". Lors d'un festival en 1968, il prend, toujours en noir et blanc au Rolleiflex 6x6, ses premières photographies consacrées à la culture nigériane. Dès lors, et pendant quarante ans, il poursuit dans tout le pays ses recherches organisées par thèmes. Hair Style, riche de près de mille clichés, est le plus considérable et le plus abouti. Ojeikere photographie les coiffures des femmes nigérianes chaque jour dans la rue, au bureau, dans les fêtes, de façon systématique, de dos, parfois de profil et plus rarement de face. Son œuvre, aujourd'hui, riche de milliers de clichés, constitue par-delà le projet esthétique, un patrimoine unique à la fois anthropologique, ethnographique et documentaire.

The world of Frédéric Bruly Bouabré, Kimmel Center, New York, USA
from 12/01/11 to 03/11/12

An outdoor series of 13 large-scale postcards by Frédéric Bruly Bouabré, from the agnès b. collection, displayed at the Kimmel Center Window Gallery at LaGuardia Place and West 3rd Street.

An exhibition curated by Lydie Diakhaté and organized by the Institute of African American Affairs at NYU.

Frédéric Bruly Bouabré, self-taught encyclopaedist and blacksmith of words, lives and works in Abidjan. While working as a civil servant in the French colonial regime in Ivory Coast, Frédéric Bruly Bouabré had a divine revelation. On March 11, 1948, seven colorful suns opened up in front of his eyes and drew a circle of beauty around Mother-Sun. The drawings selected for this exhibition are coming out of the alphabet that Bruly Bouabré invented in the 1950s.The alphabet consisted of 448 monosyllabic pictograms that symbolize phonetic syllables and transcribe all human sounds. The objective here is to explore Bruly Bouabré’s intention in creating a specific African writing from scenes of everyday life that can be read as “Object teaching, Object lessons.” All the drawings are related to different symbols about daily life, science, and culture with an educational purpose.

OPENING RECEPTION Thursday, December 1, 2011 7:00 – 9:00 pm
at Kimmel Center-NYU 60 Washington Square South, Room 405 NewYork, NY 10012



The World Belongs to You, Palazzo Grassi, Venezia, Italy
from 06/02/11 to 12/31/11
On June 2, 2011, François Pinault Foundation presents the exhibition The World Belongs to You at Palazzo Grassi. François Pinault has appointed Caroline Bourgeois as the curator of this exhibition, which was conceived to coincide with the exhibition In Praise of Doubt at Punta della Dogana, and presents another re-assessment of the traditional limits of the geography of art, and how we relate to others and the world.

The World Belongs to You brings together works by artists from different practices, generations, and backgrounds, exploring artists’ relationships to history, reality and its own representation. «The exhibition revolves around major themes of contemporary history: from the breakdown of symbols, to the temptation of self-withdrawal and isolation, the attraction of violence and spirituality in a troubled and globalised world” (Caroline Bourgeois).

Frédéric Bruly Bouabré at Tate Modern, London, England
from 03/27/10 to 03/26/11

Tate Modern is currently showing a selection of Frédéric Bruly Bouabré's drawings from the CAAC collection. These exhibits will be shown for one year, in one room (room 4), on level 3, in the "Poetry and Dream" section.


From the series 'Signes relevés sur des oranges' or
'Readings from Signs Observed in Oranges' (1991) - © Frédéric Bruly Bouabré


Bouabré was born in the village of Zéprégüé, Côte d’Ivoire, in 1923, and worked as a civil servant for the French colonial authorities, later the Republic of Ivory Coast. His life was transformed on 11th March, 1948, when he had a transcendental experience: “From the moment when the heavens opened to my eyes and seven coloured suns drew a circle of beauty around their mother sun, I became Cheik Nadro, the man who never forgets…” This inability or refusal to forget anything has informed his artistic practice ever since, and his work reflects a need to catalogue objects, people, places, images, messages and even sounds, all using the same ballpoint pen/coloured pencil, postcard-sized format. It could appear obsessive, but there is something both enchanting and calming about Bouabré’s methodical yet utterly eccentric approach. As an artist, poet, philosopher and folklorist, he explores his immediate surroundings and the wider world with seemingly inexhaustible curiosity and often wry humour, offering up his findings as he goes along.

These days the artist lives and works in Abidjan, the fourth largest French-speaking city in the world, but most of his work has found its way out of Côte d’Ivoire and into the Geneva-based private collection of Italian businessman Jean Pigozzi. Bouabré’s rise to international fame came largely thanks to his inclusion in the high-profile 1989 show Magiciens de la Terre at the Pompidou Centre in Paris, which sparked solo and group exhibitions around the world for many of the featured artists.

from 03/05/10 to 08/22/10

La Collection de l’Art Brut présentera des œuvres de Frédéric Bruly Bouabré, vivant en Côte d’Ivoire et de Ataa Oko, au Ghana.

Poète, dessinateur, conteur et penseur, Frédéric Bruly Bouabré (c. 1923) vit à Abidjan, en Côte d’Ivoire. Il poursuit aujourd’hui encore, à 89 ans, une œuvre prolifique née d’une vision céleste survenue il y a plus de soixante ans. Frédéric Bruly Bouabré a élaboré un ingénieux alphabet à partir de sa langue, le bété. Ce système, formé de 449 pictogrammes auxquels correspondent des syllabes, lui permet de consigner les langues du monde entier. Dans sa démarche universaliste, il s’adonne également à une quête poétique de signes qui expliquent le monde à partir de relevés sur l’écorce d’une banane, la forme d’un nuage ou des scarifications. Ses travaux aux crayons de couleur jouent à la fois sur l’écriture et le dessin, et contiennent une dimension édifiante et spirituelle.



Bon séjour, galerie du jour - agnès b., Paris, France
from 04/17/10 to 05/29/10

Hors de tout système, Bouabré nous ramène à l’origine en compilant les transformations poétiques et matérielles du monde. Depuis sa vision du 11 mars 1948, Bouabré a compris que son rôle de poète était de révéler la matière.

Bouabré est Nadro, celui qui n’oublie pas. Il est poète, écrivain ; conteur, chercheur, rechercheur, inventeur ; releveur, révélateur ; penseur, religieux, pacifiste ; pédagogue, archiviste, « scientiste » ; dessinateur, artiste ; dernier des encyclopédistes.

3 Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art, Garage Museum of Contemporary Art, Russia
from 09/25/09 to 11/01/09


Garage was proud to host the Third Moscow Biennale: Against Exclusion by French curator Jean-Hubert Martin and Commissioner of the Moscow Biennale Joseph Backstein.

The show brought together over seventy international artists to illustrate the process of globalisation and national self-identification. It explored the idea that ‘it is no longer possible to live in isolation, ignoring your neighbors’ in today’s globalized world, as artists also drew on aesthetic and cultural references from different countries for their work, they could also be seen to share themes. Shared references and themes could be seen in the drawings of the African artist Frédéric Bruly Bouabré, as he told the myths of his tribe, the lubok pictures by the Ukrainian artist Stas Volyazlovsky and work by the Russian outsider artist Alexander Lobanov. All their work at Against Exclusion, explored variations on the theme of identity. Identity connected to national, social, gender, racial, ethnic, ecological, and political themes were also explored in the work of Marina Abramović, Vik Muniz, Pavel Pepperstein, Yinka Shonibare. Other artists examined the evolution of form within art through the work of Anish Kapoor, Tony Cragg, Dmitry Gutov, Heinz Mack and Markus Raetz.



Works of the following Caac artists will be shown during the Moscow Biennale, at the Garage Center for Contemporary Culture, in the exhibiton entitled "Against Exclusion", curated by Jean Hubert Martin: Frédéric Bruly Bouabré, Chéri Chérin, Romuald Hazoumé, Kané Kwei, Esther Mahlangu, Chéri Samba, Cyprien Tokoudagba.




Why Africa? Pinacoteca Giovanni e Marella Agnelli, Turin, Italy
from 10/06/07 to 02/03/08


THE PIGOZZI COLLECTION
6 October 2007 – 3 February 2008
curated by André Magnin

The Pinacoteca Giovanni e Marella Agnelli is pleased to present Why Africa? The Pigozzi collection, as part of its new cultural programme dedicated to art collections.

The exhibition is having its Italian première, curated by André Magnin, Artistic Director of Contemporary African Art Collection (the Pigozzi collection), the world’s most important collection of contemporary African art.

Created in 1989 by the joint efforts of Jean Pigozzi and André Magnin, who was deputy curator of the exhibition Les Magiciens de la Terre being held at the Pompidou Centre at the time, the collection is constantly evolving with the addition of works by artists of various generations from sub-Saharian Africa. It maintains strong links with the artists it supports, giving them visibility and recognition on the international art scene, and this was confirmed this year when the 52nd International Venice Biennale awarded a Golden Lion for lifetime achievements to 72 year old photographer Malick Sidibé, because no one is worthier than him to receive this honour (Robert Storr).

Jean Pigozzi reveals his passion and obsession for African art in about one hundred works selected from the collection, several of which have never been exhibited before. The exhibition includes drawings, paintings, sculpture, photographs, installations and site specific works as the one conceived by the South -African artist Esther Mahlangu for the new Fiat 500.

The great wealth of African contemporary artistic output is presented through the work of several artists -Frédéric Bruly Bouabré, Bodys Isek Kingelez, Chéri Samba and Malick Sidibé, George Lilanga and Keita Seydou, precursors of contemporary African art who died recently – who overcame the stereotype of folklore and decorative art of the postcolonial period and forged links with Western art, developing their own autonomous language.

The majority of these artists produce works that are figurative or inspired by current topics, depicting a reality that is both local and global.

One of the most obvious constants is the deep bond with the territory: the artists address the territory first and foremost, and they work with what is familiar to them; their art is inclusive, rooted in history and against division. Art that comes from the people, addresses the people and returns to the people, in the words of André Magnin.

The exhibition will be presented in a special setting created by Ettore Sottsass and Marco Palmieri.

A number of conferences and meetings and a film screening dedicated to Africa will be organised during the exhibition, supporting by ERSEL.

The guide to the exhibition has been realized by Fabrica, Benetton research centre on communications. Created to lead the visitor through the ‘itinerary’ of the show, the guide offers an insight to the artists and their work.



Africa Remix: Contemporary Art of a Continent, Johannesburg Art Gallery, South Africa
from 06/24/07 to 09/30/07

'Africa Remix: Contemporary Art of a Continent' features the work of more than 85 artists from 25 countries on the African continent and the Diaspora. Considered to be the largest exhibition of contemporary African art ever seen in Europe, it includes painting, sculpture, installation, video, drawing, photography and design.

'Africa Remix' explores the themes of city and land (the contrasting experiences of urban and rural life), identity and history (including issues of tradition and modernity and the relation of the individual to the community), and body and soul (religion, spirituality, emotion and sexuality).

Cameroon-born, Paris-based curator and critic Simon Njami curated the exhibition, which was launched at the Museum Kunst Palast, Düat;sseldorf, in 2004. The show subsequently travelled to the Hayward Gallery, London; Centre Pompidou, Paris; the Mori Art Museum, Tokyo; and the Moderna Museet, Stockholm. 'Africa Remix' will be open for the first time in Africa at the Johannesburg Art Gallery.

Frédéric Bruly Bouabré, IKON Gallery, Birmingham, England
from 07/28/07 to 09/16/07

Frédéric Bruly Bouabré’s practice is encyclopedic, aspiring to the depiction of everything, a means of apprehending and communicating the way the world works. He makes thousands of postcard-sized drawings, graphic images bordered by upper-case texts that categorise and date them. They are exquisite, symbolic cartoons, drawn inballpoint and coloured pencils. As he explains: “I usually depict men and women. After all, the earth is humanity.” Also there are pictures of hunting traps, clouds, rocks, gold weights and kola nuts, very loaded from a West African point of view. More generally, they convey a need to know how we know the most familiar things – not just a question of communication, but how our communication determines our understanding.

By accumulation, Bouabré’s work acquires its strength and gravity. His various series involve hundreds and hundreds of pieces, drawings that are like diary entries, countless observations on everyday life. There is a modesty, of medium and subject matter, foiled by a philosophical ambition that is conveyed by the umbrella titles: Connaissance du monde (Knowledge of the World), Le Musee du Visage Africain (The Museum of African Faces), Alphabet and Vision.

In addition, Ikon presented a new series, entitled La Haute Diplomatie (High Diplomacy), which comprised 193 colourful drawings that portrayed individuals who personified all the countries of the world. The ?gures, one per postcard, wear clothes that incorporate the colours and shapes of their national flags. Each has a distinct demeanour, but they all extend their right hand, in a diplomatic gesture of friendship. The consistent format belies the humorous, poignant idiosyncrasies that make subtle political references. Bouabré extends notions of connectedness with an increased internationalism. Birmingham, one of the most multi-cultural cities in the world, could not have been more appropriate for this exhibition.

A book featuring La Haute Diplomatie is available from Ikon Shop for £14. Texts by André Magnin, Yaya Savané, Ettore Sottsass and Jonathan Watkins.

Africa Remix: Contemporary Art of a Continent, Mori Art Museum, Tokyo, Japan
from 05/27/06 to 08/31/06

Africa - what comes to mind when envisaging this vast continent? Africa is marked by diversity - the beauty and majesty of its deserts, savannahs and tropical rainforests as well as by the soaring high-rises of its cities. This continent, 80 times the area of Japan, is a collection of countries with a multiplicity of traditions, cultures, peoples, religions and languages. Its allure is in direct proportion to its vastness.

Africa Remix provides an introduction to the surprisingly little known cultural richness of Africa today. It is an exhibition of around 140 works by 84 artists from 25 countries spanning the length and breadth of the continent as well as a series of supporting programs - talks, film, music, even food. African contemporary art has never been shown on such a large scale before and the exhibition includes painting, drawing, sculpture, assemblage, installation, photography, video, music and furniture design. Visitors will encounter the creative energy of today's African art as well as the power of expression that runs through life there.

“Remix” is a musical term that means creating new music by putting together original sound sources in a different way. The individual works in this exhibition move away from previous stereotypes by playing and resonating in a remix that conveys the contemporary African situation in a dynamic and compelling rhythm - one that we hope will capture your heart and mind.
This exhibition of contemporary African art can be your first step in getting to know more about Africa. Imagine that you are crossing the African continent and expand your world of imagination and experience by visiting Africa Remix.

This exhibition has already been shown at the museum kunst palast, Düsseldorf, the Hayward Gallery, London, and the Centre Pompidou, Paris, all of which collaborated with the Mori Art Museum its organization. (Chief Curator: Simon Njami)

Africa Remix: l'art contemporain d'un continent, Centre Pompidou, Paris, France
from 05/25/05 to 08/08/05

Après Düsseldorf et Londres, le Centre Pompidou accueille Africa Remix, première grande exposition d'art contemporain africain.

Africa Remix regroupe les œuvres d'artistes déjà présents dans les circuits de l'art contemporain ainsi que le travail de jeunes artistes encore peu connus. Cette exposition met en avant 84 artistes africains ou d'origine africaine, des femmes et des hommes vivant sur le continent africain ou ailleurs. Plus de 200 œuvres sont présentées. Africa Remix dresse un état de la création africaine dans ses développements les plus récents. Remix signifie, pour Jean Hubert Martin, commissaire de l'exposition de Dusseldorf : "que les chances sont redistribuées, que nous nous trouvons en présence d'une situation hybride, reflet de la globalisation". Cette exposition présente un état de l'art africain d'aujourd'hui, en prise directe avec les tendances les plus novatrices de la création contemporaine.

La plupart des artistes présentés traite des questions actuelles d'une réalité africaine post-coloniale. Ils appartiennent à une génération qui a grandi avec internet et vit les mutations africaines. Une grande variété de modes d'expression est représentée dans l'exposition : peinture, dessin, sculpture, assemblage, installation, photographie, vidéo, design, musique. Cette diversité rend compte de la richesse de la création africaine contemporaine, du Maghreb à l'Afrique du Sud en passant par l'Afrique sub-saharienne. "Africa Remix" devrait changer notre regard sur le mythe de l'Afrique.
