The Raw Material Company will present its entire permanent collection in one great exhibition for the first time.
Since the inauguration of its physical space in April 2011, Raw Material Company has organised fourteen exhibitions, two international symposiums and edited ten catalogues, monographs and brochures covering relevant subjects surrounding artistic practice and thought and its role in an open society.
The artists who have worked with the Raw Material Company generously contributed to the establishment of a permanent collection that reflects the eclectic and engaged character of the programming. The collection includes works on paper, photography, sculpture, painting, and drawings.
In 2012 in collaboration with Céramiques Almadies Raw Material Company initiated Partcours; an annual event whose aim is to federate different art spaces and institutions in Dakar for an increased appreciation of art in the city. On occasion of the third edition of Partcours, the collection of the Raw Material Company will be shown for the first in its entirety.
Participants are: A Kassen, Alexis Peskine, George Osodi, Ibrahima Kebe, Issa Samb, Mansour Ciss, Melvin Edwards, Olafur Eliasson, Otobong Nkanga, Souleymane Keita, Vincent Michéa, Zen Marie
