New African Pavilion at the Biennale Art

Jul-25-2007
New African Pavilion at the Biennale ArtThe Biennial Art blazes with the Sindika Dokolo African Collection of Contemporary Art, from Luanda in the new African pavilion at the Arsenale.
Check List Luanda Pop: The first African pavilion at the Biennial of Venice reflects the heterogenous nature of this continent, where so many different ethnic groups and traditions coexist.
The exposition, selected by a committee of experts (Meskerem Assegued, Ekow Eshun, Lyle Ashton Harris, Kellie Jones, Bisi Silva, presided by Robert Storr), is a manifesto on the constitution of African identity.
This urges us to rethink the theme of difference, from its roots up to the stereotypes hidden in the idea of ethicality.
The ten artists who are displaying at the exposition clearly testify to the process of the internationalization of art.
