#FLVfromhome : Art/Afrique, le nouvel atelier

Past exhibition - Wednesday 22 April 2020

In conjunction with #FLVfromhome, the Fondation invites you to focus on Art/Afrique, le nouvel atelier, presented from 26 April to 4 September 2017.

 

The Fondation devoted in 2017 the entirety of its display areas, as well as a full multidisciplinary programme, to Africa. ”Art/Afrique, le nouvel atelier” united two exhibitions – The Insiders (“Les Initiés”): a selection of works (1989-2009) from the Jean Pigozzi collection of contemporary African art and Being There (“Être là”): South Africa, a contemporary scene – to which were added select works from the Collection.

 

The Insiders (“Les Initiés”): a selection of works (1989-2009) from the Jean Pigozzi collection of contemporary African art reunited a selection of works by fifteen emblematic artists from Jean Pigozzi’s collection. All are heirs to unique spiritual, scientific and technical wisdom and give form to their worlds across a variety of media and through a broad expressive palette.

 

Being There (“Être là”): South Africa, a contemporary scene was devoted to South Africa, one of the most dynamic scenes on the African continent. Its potency, first revealed to the world in the 1990s, is especially due to the emergence of a new ecosystem, constituted in part by very involved and committed institutions, galleries and universities.

 

Complementing the two temporary exhibitions, a selection of African works from the Collection which, through various media, explored the history and identity of the African continent and cultures, which today are essential to understanding the world’s artistic landscape.

 

This Wednesday at 10 am (Paris CET) Angeline Scherf, co-curator, will go live on Facebook to present the exhibition.
