African art confirms its association with the Middle East through the 3-day All Africa Festival, scheduled to take place at Tower Park, Downtown Dubai from Emaar from 21 to 23 October 2021.
In its first edition this year, the exhibition includes African artists with both long-term vendors and emerging talent, and will share their work in the Middle East, creating a platform for cooperation and exchange between the two regions.
Co-author of this first exhibition, Kobe Minte, Kwame Minta and Awsu Afri’s wellness as curators, will be held inside an art exhibition designed specifically for the event at Emaar’s Plaza Tower. The main idea is to celebrate ties, namely, to link tradition and the inherent legacy of modernity and evolving thought in new Africa.
Designed by Ghana architect Alice Asavo-Adjaye, this exhibition is inspired by traditions, historical and cultural symbols and environmental conditions that dictate rich lifestyles and cultures in Both Africa and the Middle East.
The first Efiφ exhibition, in collaboration with Emaar, Africa No Filter, the African Centre in London, the Nubuke Foundation in Accra, the Kuenyehia Fund for Contemporary Art and the Claudia M Gallery, is presented.
The first Efiφ exhibition will remain in the same venue after the festival and will be open to the public from 1pm to 10pm daily at Emaar’s Plaza Tower, until it moves to its permanent headquarters in Dubai.
