AKAA Art & Design fair, Paris

at the Carreau du Temple : 08 to 11 november,2018

The booth of the gallery, Didier Claes.

A small walk, at Le Carreau du Temple, is needed to discover the fair : Akaa Fair. It's an art fair with contemporary design and art, devoted to Africa and her diaspora. For her third edition, they invested to make it happen at the Carreau du Temple lobby, in Paris.

49 exhibitors and 140 artists attended. All different kinds of styles were represented, far from clichés about Africa and its tribal art : from plastic art to sculpture, photography or even contemporary design.

This fair showed beautifully African artists and their diaspora creativity.

The Akaa is now one of the dates to remember !

My hot picks :

The Casablanca 38 gallery who chose to represents Soly Cissé, a Senegalese artist.
