Ex Africa

ISBN: 9782072894527 (PB - E)

The exhibition EX AFRICA at the Musée du Quai Branly in Paris from 6th October 2020 to 24th January 2021 aims to show the relationships that exist today and since the end of the 20th century between contemporary and ancient African arts. The notion of primitivism as it was enunciated in 1984 in the exhibition Primitivism at MoMA, which locked the arts of Africa into a subjection to the idea of modern Western art and into the past, is definitively over: ideas and forms specific to these arts are now more alive than ever. This accompanying catalogue presents the work of the 20 artists, exhibited together with sketches and photographs to help understand the scope of their work. It also includes individual interviews which each artist. - Presents the work of 20 contemporary artists, men and women of all generations and origins - Encompasses painting, sculpture, photography, sketches, video and installations with accompanying dialogue to help understand the relationship between contemporary art and ancient African art

Philippe Dagen is an art critic for newspaper Le Monde and Professor of Contemporary Art History at the University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne. Souleymane Bachir Diagne is professor of philosophy and head of the Institute of African studies at Columbia University, New York.
