What About You?

09/08/2020 - 07/09/2020 @ SBK Galerie 23 Hedendaagse Afrikaanse Kunst KNSM

Galerie 23 is proud to present the exhibition 'What About You?' in collaboration with Urban Africans, a group exhibition with works of art by Senegalese artists.

Senegal, the land of the famous Dak'Art Biennale, has a distinct art history. Since the 1960s, there has been a strong emphasis on painting, which has shaped the current generation of artists. In this exhibition 'What About You?' the viewer is asked to think about identity, the human gaze, behaviour, tradition, modernity, history, brotherhood and socio-political themes. Participating Artists: Kine Aw, Kh Bamba, Barkinado Bocoum, Amy Celestine Dion, Sambou Diouf, Abdoulaye Armin Kane, Sandiry Niang, Piniang. Curator 'What About You': Rosalie van Deursen, founder of Urban Africans. Rosalie van Deursen is an art historian. She introduced 'Global Art' at art schools and in 2014 launched 'Urban Africans' a platform aimed at discovering Africa through the eyes of contemporary artists. She organizes art trips to African cities and biennials, among other things. She also organizes exhibitions, lectures, workshops, tours and writes and advises on contemporary African art. There will be no opening, but you can visit the exhibition from August 8, 2020. Rosalie van Deursen of Urban Africans will give a lecture on Sunday September 6 at 2 pm. The lecture will be concluded with a finissage at 4 pm. You must register for both events. Due to the corona measures, there are limited places available, so be quick!
