African Galleries Now x Artsy is a pan-African AAGA initiative in partnership with leading US based media and arts auction platform Artsy bringing together a network of 12 pan-African galleries showcasing contemporary African art from the continent from June 9th–27th.
Each gallery presents four visual artists–a total of 48–including artists from Sudan, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Mozambique, Angola, Namibia, Uganda, Kenya, Nigeria, Botswana, Egypt, Mali, Cameroon and Tunisia.
As international interest in African contemporary art continues to grow, the African Art Galleries Association (AAGA) brings together a broad community of arts professionals championing the growth and sustainability of contemporary African visual art on the continent and supports its future leaders.
By building an African arts infrastructure and advancing the professional development of artists, curators, critics, art dealers and collectors while creating networks that allow emerging galleries to prosper, the pan-African AAGA initiative supports contemporary art sectors and infrastructure on all parts of the continent.
