11 Contemporary Ethiopian artists are showing together for the first time in Nairobi at a new exhibition entitled ‘Addis Contemporary’ curated by Mifta Zeleke, curator and gallerist from Addis Ababa on 18th June at the Circle Art Gallery, Lavington.

The exhibition promises to be an exciting overview of the dramatic Addis art scene, all the artists are art school graduates, all the artists are residents of Addis and address the dramatic political and economic changes they are experiencing in their country in their paintings.

Two of Circle’s most collectable artists; Ephrem Solomon and Dawit Abebe are joined by nine other cutting edge, emerging and established Ethiopian contemporary artists who have not had the opportunity to be seen by Nairobi art audiences yet.

With: Dawit Abebe, Nebiat Abebe, Dawit Adnew, Kerima Ahmed, Surafel Amare, Tesfaye Bekele, Dereje Demissie, Addis Gezahegn, Tamrat Gezahegn, Yosef Lule & Ephrem Solomon
