About the Exhibition
The intersection is manifested in the works exhibited, but also promises an innovative experience for art fair visitors.
The artists presented hail from Zimbabwe, Nigeria, South Africa and the USA. Collectively, they demonstrate how the two worlds are coming together in the 21st century, from the perspective of African visual artists and fashion designers. The booth will blend art, design, music, performance, dance and Prêt-à-Porter, blurring traditional boundaries and reinvigorating the art fair model.
The multidisciplinary dialogue on artistic influences offers a variety of approaches to different imagery, iconography, figuration and textures. On one hand, these influences are dually reflected in memorable visual compositions, and on the other, studies accessible materials referencing African cultural heritage. The exhibition provides an opportunity to experience artworks free of traditional boundaries, transforming simple ordinary materials into contemporary art, for the wall and for the body.
