A polysemic exhibition that casts a fresh look at the panorama of contemporary African art: A Fresh Look at Afrika is in fact dedicated to three artists, respectively the sculptor John Goba, the photographer Seydou Keïta and the painter Esther Mahlangu. The exhibition ventures into new territories of contemporary art, little known to the Western eye: Seydou Keïta’s photographs focus on documentary research into a particular historical period in Mali, the sculptor John Goba presents works rooted in tribal spiritualism while Esther Mahlangu expresses herself through decorative traditions handed down through the female line.
