Africa State of Mind is an art exhibition exploring the work of an emergent generation of photographers from across the African continent.

About

Artists from 10 different countries interrogate ideas of ‘Africanness’ through highly subjective renderings of life and identity on the continent, revealing Africa to be a state of mind as much as a physical location.

This exhibition documents the modern African city in all its dynamism and contradiction. The fluidity of gender and sexual identity is addressed through compelling portraiture, and the legacy of history, from slavery and colonialism to apartheid, becomes the source of new myths and dreamscapes. 

Exhibited artists: Emmanuelle Andrianjafy, Sammy Baloji, Raphael Barontini, Neil Beloufa, Girma Berta, Eric Gyamfi, Kiluanji Kia Henda, Lebohang Kganye, Namsa Leuba, Michael MacGarry, Sabelo Mlangeni, Musa N Nxumalo, Ruth Ossai, Athi-Patra Ruga, Michael Tsegaye
