"Africa: the artist and the city"
2001-05-29 until 2001-09-11
Centre de Cultura Contemporania de Barcelona
Barcelona, , ES Spain

Africa: the artist and the city takes a look through the eyes of contemporary African artists at the changing and, at times, hostile reality of this continent's major metropolises; a review of its artistic vitality, which appears to be a struggle between traditional cultural forms and a host of new concerns stemming from the conflicts that the rapid process of urban development has brought to Africa.

Artists included in this exhibition are El Anatsui, Godfried Donkor, Berry Bickle, Viyé Diba, Amadou Kan-Si, Ousmane Dago Ndiaye, Anapa, Ananias Leki, Patrice Felix Tchicaya, Dilomprizulike, Akinbode Akinbiyi, David Brazier / Luis Basto / Calvin Dondo, Sokari Douglas Camp, Eileen Porrier, Penny Siopis, Santu Mofokeng, Willie Bester, Zwelethu Mthethwa, Jane Alexander, Moshekwa Langa, Bodys I. Kingelez and Samuel Fosso.

The exhibition is part of the first BARCELONA ART REPORT 2001 triennial, an initiative of the Ajuntament de Barcelona (Barcelona City Council) which is jointly directed and organised by a committee comprising members of the Institut de Cultura de Barcelona (ICUB), the Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA) and the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona (CCCB).

This first triennial, under the title EXPERIENCES, also involves the collaboration of the Centre d’Art Santa Mònica (Visual Arts Delegation of the Generalitat de Catalunya – Government of Catalonia), Hangar, the Escola Tècnica Superior d’Arquitectura de Barcelona (ETSAB - Barcelona School of Architecture), the Fundació Antoni Tàpies and Barcelona Televisió (BTV), and is still open to institutions and collectives for new initiatives.
