The Jean Pigozzi African Art Collection

Africa Tunes – Complesso di Sant’Agostino, Pietrasanta/Lucca, Italy

from 20/01/2024 to 17/03/2024

African art takes center stage in Pietrasanta with the exhibition titled Africa Tunes, a group show curated by Alessandro Romanini, hosted at the Complesso di Sant’Agostino from Jan. 20 to March 17, 2024, and produced by the City of Pietrasanta in collaboration with The Project Space and Lis10 Gallery. The idea behind the exhibition, which features work by 17 African artists from the last two generations, is that contemporary African creativity (painting, sculpture and photography can be found in the itinerary) demonstrates how Africa is no longer a continent disconnected from the international geo-cultural and socio-political map, but that it has even inserted itself as a protagonist at the top of the global creative debate, from music to cinema, from fashion design to literature, and on to the visual arts where by now African artists are increasingly present.
