For its first edition C& is thrilled to be working with acclaimed Paris-based artist Kapwani Kiwanga. C& will present a series of ten unique drawings by Kapwani Kiwanga, which reference the French colonial urbanist Hubert Lyautey’s proposition that a measurement of 500ft should be placed between native and European areas. He did so during the International Congress of Urbanism in the colonies which was held in Paris, France in 1931 in conjunction with the Colonial Exhibition taking place in the city.
The edition will be launched during 1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair from 3-6 October 2019. We can be found at Somerset House on the Lower Ground Floor, by the Stamp Stairs (Embankment Level).
C& Artist’s Editions will offer an accessible, collectible portfolio of works by younger and older generations of artists from Africa and the Global Diaspora.
C& will offer experienced as well as aspiring collectors, and ad-hoc art-lovers unbiased, affordable access to artists who have been part of the C& network since its launch in 2013. All proceeds from the sale of the editions support the artists and C&.
