Officine dell’Immagine Gallery in Milan hosts the group exhibition curated by Silvia Cirelli,“We Call It ‘Africa’. Artists from Sub-Saharan Africa”, a show entirely dedicated to the complex and multifaceted artistic scene of the countries of the
so-called Sub-Saharan Africa.
The choice of title is intended to dwell provocatively on how often a forced geographical or generational specificity is used, circumscribing or even worse “ghettoizing” a particular creative scene. “We Call It ‘Africa’” is therefore an attempt to explore the various and different “Africas”, the countless cultural and aesthetic universes that inhabit this multifaceted landscape, with an emphasis on the relationship between art and contemporary society.
Dimitri Fagbohoun (Benin), Bronwyn Katz (South Africa), Marcia Kure (Nigeria) and Maurice Mbikayi (Democratic Republic of Congo) are the artists invited to illustrate, for the first time in Italy, the many influences in art of extremely current themes, focusing on socio-cultural, identity-making and geopolitical issues, particularly representative of the complex African reality.
