Over the years, AKAA has remained true to its original vision, an invitation to discover artists who claim a link in their practice to the African continent. A contemporary look at these artistic scenes that goes beyond geographical borders, open to dialogue, discovery, and wonder without clichés or preconceptions. Some exciting faces’ paintings and pieces will be presented during the fair like Matthew Eguavoen, Bouncy Enkobo, Éder Oliveira as well as Aviwe Plaatji, so don’t miss discovering these avant-garde talents!
