Paris's Louis Vuitton Foundation showcases contemporary African art
Date created : Latest update :
From Benin to Botswana, Cameroon to Congo, creations from sub-Saharan Africa are this summer’s hottest ticket at the Louis Vuitton Foundation for Contemporary Art. In this special programme we take a look around the show, which is made up of three distinct exhibits: offerings from the foundation’s own archive, a selection from Jean Pigozzi’s prestigious collection and an overview of the best in South African contemporary art.
With insight from curator Suzanne Pagé, we meet the artists in the spotlight both on the continent and abroad, as Barthélémy Toguo, Athi-Patra Ruga, Kemang Wa Lehulere and Lawrence Lemaoana tell us about their inspiration, their process and their place in the world of contemporary art.
