Africa Now

from 15-11-2019
to 06-01-2020
From November 15th at the Mo.Ca of Brescia collective exhibition Africa Now, curated by Stelva Artist in residence and Albano Morandi.


What do we know about African contemporary art? As much as we think we know about Africa itself. Quite little.

Looking for African contemporary art nowadays is a matter of urgent necessity for us. Because, if it’s true that art can teach us how to understand people, their lives, history and expectations more than any academic speculation and any scientific study, it’s also our duty beyond extreme pleasure, to joyfully immerse ourselves into a so crucial scene. A scene of which needs to be understood, in all its forms of expression.
