ACA Exhibition MAY 2021
WE CURATE, CELEBRATE & PROMOTE
CONTEMPORARY AFRICAN ART & DESIGN.
AfricaContemporary.Art was established with the vision of celebrating the ingenuity, resilience, creativity, artistry and brilliance of contemporary artists from the continent - in all formats and across all platforms.
We have established a niche stable of contemporary African artists and designers, whose work we are actively promoting to our private and corporate patrons, through exhibitions, installations and curation.
From as far back as the 1980s: We have collated and curated permanent, temporary and pop-up exhibitions, video archives and installations for corporate and private clients - including GE Africa Innovation Centre, Gordon Institute of Business Science, as well as submitting work, or working on projects with: Zeitz MOCAA, Norval Foundation and Javett Art Centre.
Ultimately: We are driven by our passion: a dedication to the development of young African creatives - and the celebration of pure African inspiration - whether from our own initiatives and projects, or simply showing our appreciation for the work of our peers.
We would love you to join us on this journey!
