In the second lecture, curator N’Goné Fall will share with the audience the antecedents, challenges, and stakes of African contemporary art. The continent’s culture has always been viewed under “African stereotype”, especially those imposed from Western perspectives. This obsolete “heritage” burdens and hinders the artistic and cultural producers. Then what would they do? N’Goné will present a series of profound and interesting examples by artists from diverse African countries, ones who reflect the history, the present and the future of Africa through visual art. Their projects are not confined within the boundaries of modernism but live, move, and breath with the contemporaneity.

*Entrance is free. English – Vietnamese translation will be provided.


N’Goné Fall participates in ‘Encounter’, a lecture series which is part of a large artistic endeavour called ‘Conscious Realities’, initiated and organized by San Art in partnership with Prince Claus Fund
