The Ethiopian Gallery Addis Fine Art announces the opening of their first permanent space in London, a two-storey gallery space in the heart of Fitzrovia. The inaugural show will be a solo exhibition by Ethiopian Israeli painter Nirit Takele, 8 – 30 October 2021.
In 2016, Rakeb Sile and Mesai Haileleul co-founded Addis Fine Art, creating the first white-cube gallery space for modern and contemporary art in Ethiopia. Described as one of the « Most Important Young Galleries in the World » (Artsy 2019), the gallery has since then grown to become one of the leading galleries in Africa, establishing a prominent international platform for artists from the Horn of Africa.
For the first time the Black-owned gallery will be part of Frieze London (13-17 October) exhibiting paintings by the Ethiopian artist Merikokeb Berhanu at the Focus section.
