The exhibition 'Making Africa' offers an insight into this less-well known aspect of the continent
The fact that the African visual arts scene has a lot to offer the world has already been reflected in many exhibitions. But there’s another artistic field, that of design, which is still able to reveal to us another face of Africa. The exhibition Making Africa at CCCB aims to introduce us to contemporary African design. It features the work of more than 120 artists and shows how design reflects and drives economic, political, social cultural and technological change on the African continent.
In it, we can see works from different creative ambits including the design of objects and furniture, graphic arts, illustration, fashion, architecture, urban planning, art, crafts, film, photography, websites, social media and editing. In this sense, the new media will have a core role in the exhibition, as a new tool that allows for wide ranging social change on the continent.
In Making Africa we will have the opportunity to comprehend the spirit of a new generation of African entrepreneurs, thinkers and designers, as well as other artists from the continent who, as global beings, are addressing a worldwide audience from a purely African perspective.
