Also Known As Africa, four words that express the philosophy of this fair, and suggest a multitude of possibilities.
AKAA opens the dialog and invites artists, galleries, collectors, amateurs, curators, and art critics to contribute to the development of an art scene that brings together diverse perspectives as the world looks at Africa, and Africa looks at the world. We are, each of us, invited to share our story, our singularity, and our vision.
Contemporary artists from Africa are succeeding in reversing the historical trends and prejudices that have often been a barrier to recognition. The world is turning its gaze toward the contemporary arts from Africa, and AKAA is joining forces with this vital movement.
The 30 galleries and 123 artists that participate in the current edition reflect international recognition of this contemporary scene, which finally has its rightful place, here and now, annually and for years to come, in Paris.
