What About Africa? - Witteveen Visual Art Centre, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
from 01/23/16 to 02/27/16
'What about Africa?' gives an impression of the quality of contemporary African art. We did not want to restrict the presentation by selecting works relating to a specific theme. We have deliberately based it on personal choice. Saying that, we have tried to cover as great a diversity of disciplines as possible, to have a variety of ages, to guarantee a wide range of subject matters, to make the distribution across Africa as broad as possible and to make no distinction between artists who live and work in Africa and artists in the Diaspora.

'What about Africa?' has the potential to prepare the Netherlands for Africa.
'What about Africa?' is above all an exhibition with surprising, inspirational, moving, intriguing art.

Guest curator and editor-in-chief of Africanah.org Rob Perrée will open the exhibition in presence of some participating artists.

L' Afrique à Paris - Galerie Hussenot, Paris, France
from 03/12/11 to 04/23/11
Joel Andrianomearisoa, Romuald Hazoumè, Moshekwa Langa, Cameron Platter, Chéri Samba, Kura Shomali, Billie Zangewa

André Magnin et Eric Hussenot présentent une exposition réunissant sept artistes venus d’Afrique du Sud, du Bénin, du Congo démocratique et de Madagascar. La diversité des oeuvres de ces artistes est à l’image d’une Afrique plurielle qui construit, qui partage et qui invente. Bien que les oeuvres nous propulsent dans des univers inspirés des réalités du quotidien en Afrique, des croyances ou des rêves, elles postulent une lisibilité internationale.


Saturday 12th March - Saturday 23rd April
Opening:
Saturday 12th March 17:00 - 19:00
