There & Back features 20 African artists from five generations who have made an impact in the international art world. The exhibition invites viewers to undertake a two-way journey, from South to North, and examine the similarities and differences between the work of those artists who emigrated and the work of those who stayed. It also invites us to reevaluate our concept of what is African.”
The works represent several generations of artists who have penetrated international circuits in recent years.
Frédéric Bruly Bouabré (Ivory Coast) serves as the starting point for a dialogue between the local and the global with works that challenge every possible preconceived idea about tradition and contemporaneity.
In turn, these establish a harmonious dialogue with the works of other artists such as William Kentridge (South Africa), Viyé Diba (Senegal) and Touhami Ennadre (Morocco), and with those of younger artists who experiment with the full range of media (photography, video and film), such as Emeka Udemba (Nigeria), Marie Blanche Ouedraogo (Burkina Faso), Otobong Nkanga (Nigeria), Romuald Hazoumé (Benin) and Soly Cissé (Senegal). Artists: Ammar Bouras, Modou Dieng, Mbongeni Richman, Buthelezi, Touhami Ennadre, Frédéric Bruly, Bouabré, Moustapha Dimé, Soly Cissé, Frances Goodman, Otobong Nkanga, Abdoulaye Konaté, Chéri Samba, Romual Hazoumé, Marie Blanche, Ouedraogo, William Kentridge, Djibril Sy, Bodys Isek Kingelez, Miguel Petchkovsky, Moshekwa Langa, Emeka Udemba and Ammar Bauras.
