AKAA – Also Known As Africa – is the first art fair devoted to contemporary art and design from Africa to be held in France.
AKAA is a celebration of the creative spirit of Africa, as well as a journey of discovery of those artists, leading and emerging, in and out of the contours of the continent, whose talent influences the evolution of art from Africa, and fuels the growing conversation about it.
AKAA is dedicated to presenting the richness of contemporary art from Africa in all of its plurality as expressed by African-continent artists; African-American artists; African diaspora artists; and artists whose work is refracted through the prism of their experience of Africa.
AKAA’s first edition will take place in the Marais district of Paris, from December 3-6 2015, at the beautifully restored Carreau du Temple.
I am committed, with my team, to bringing together artists, art galleries, art centres and foundations, with collectors, curators, journalists and all those at the forefront of contemporary art from Africa to make AKAA a commercial, cultural and media success.
I hope you will join me in this exciting adventure.
