This exclusive event will showcase a selection of artwork from new and established African artists across the continent and its diaspora, to celebrate the unprecedented rise in appreciation for African Art, amidst the new narrative about luxury and Africa. It is highly anticipated this event will be a catalyst to the conversation on the emergence of African Art, as an exciting new landscape for investment, with new generation collectors and seasoned art connoisseurs alike.
The first exhibition in the African Art Series will present a display of inspirational and incandescent works, that unapologetically luxuriate in the 'luminosity' of African artists. Curated by Lisa Anderson of Lisa Anderson Art Advisory, together with founder of The African Art Series, Cas Ojo, the show will celebrate the creative depth and technical flair of African artworks, presenting them as fruits of Africa’s myriad expressions of opulence, beauty and enjoyment. The exhibition will draw from the fertile intersection between contemporary art from Africa, its diaspora and nascent notions of African luxury, intertwined with the luxury narrative in a broader western context.
