This exhibition designed by Marie-Ann Yemsi, offers an encounter with a brand new generation of artists from the African continent and its diasporas, some of whom are being exhibited for the first time in France. Cosmopolitan artists fully in touch with the changing world, with a clear-sighted freedom, they are playing with multiple registers and drawing on a range of art forms, including painting, drawing, video, photography and sculpture. Featuring Igshaan Adams, ruby onyinyechi amanze, Clay Apenouvon, Yesmine Ben Khelil, Julien Creuzet, Frances Goodman, Bronwyn Katz, Lebohang Kganye, Banele Khoza, Lawrence Lemaoana, Mónica de Miranda, Turiya Magadlela, Mohau Modisakeng, Emeka Ogboh and Moffat Takadiwa, this artistic journey through critical, dense and promising creative expression invites us to transform the way in which we see and perceive things. Although the exhibition cannot be seen as a mapping of contemporary creative pursuits on the African continent, it does reflect the reality of the circulation of ideas, cultures, and objects, as well as individuals and their migration. Artists show us their vision of the world which lies ahead, as they imagine it.
