Item description for Africas: The Artist and the City: A Journey and an Exhibition by Akinbode Akinbiyi...

Description: Africas: The Artist and the City contains a double affirmation. It corroborates the existence of an "other" urban and artistic reality in Africa, and it asserts that these realities do not correspond with what stereotypes would have us see as Africa's sole reality. In the words of Pep Subiros, we should talk not of Africa but of Africas. Yet until now, there has been little said about the Africas depicted here, about urban centers like Dakar, Cape Town, and Abidjan that are undergoing urbanization and growth at breakneck speed. And what of the work of artists based in these cities? Africas: The Artist and the City aims to illustrate a moment in which a fertile collision is taking place between tradition and modernity, between the local and the global--and to introduce the settings where this confluence is taking place.
