Presented by the African Art Galleries Association (AAGA), African Galleries Now brings together a network of 12 pan-African galleries showcasing contemporary African art from the continent from June 9th–27th.
Each gallery presents four visual artists, a total of 48 participants including: Pebofatso Mokoena and Helen Teede (First Floor Gallery, Zimbabwe), Aviwe Plaatjie and Wole Lagunju (Ebony Curated, South Africa), Tuli Mekondjo and Sizwe Sama Sibisi (Guns & Rain, South Africa), Mauro Pinto (Arte de Gema, Mozambique), Osvaldo Ferreira (This is not a white cube, Angola), Turiya Magadlela and Ayanda Mabulu (Kalashnikovv, South Africa), Mario Macilau and Antonio Ole, (MOVART, Angola), Charlene Komuntale and Eltayeb Delwabait, (Afriart Gallery, Uganda) and Amel Bennys and Thameur Mejri (Selma Feriani Gallery, Tunis).
As international interest in African contemporary art continues to grow, the AAGA brings together a broad community of arts professionals championing the growth and sustainability of contemporary African visual art on the continent and supports its future leaders.
By building an African arts infrastructure and advancing the professional development of artists, curators, critics, art dealers and collectors while creating networks that allow emerging galleries to prosper, the pan-African AAGA initiative supports contemporary art sectors and infrastructure on all parts of the continent.
