Exhibition Launch: Africa State of Mind

28 September 2018, 6pm - midnight

New Art Exchange

A ground breaking exhibition presenting new visions in African Photography. Produced by New Art Exchange and curated by Ekow Eshun.

16 artists from 11 different countries interrogate ideas of "Africanness" through highly subjective renderings of life and identity on the continent, along the way revealing Africa to be a psychological space as much as a physical territory; a state of mind as much as a physical location.

It features Emmanuelle Andrianjafy, Sammy Baloji, Raphaël Barontini, Neil Beloufa, Girma Berta, Eric Gyamfi, Kiluanji Kia Henda, Lebohang Kganye, Namsa Leuba, Michael MacGarry, Sabelo Mlangeni, Mimi Cherono Ng'ok, Musa N Nxumalo, Ruth Ossai, Athi Patra Ruga and Michael Tsegaye.

Exhibition continues until 16 December. More >>
