Contemporary African Sculptures

Contemporary African sculpture is very dynamic. It’s inspired as much by the traditions of the continent as it is (as is increasingly the case) by the contemporary urban realities of a changing Africa. Techniques and materials are diverse, ranging from wood, stone and bronze through to sculptures made of recycled materials...

In 1989, the "Magicians of the Earth" exhibition (Centre Pompidou, 1989) included contemporary African works of art for the first time in Europe. In 2005, the "Africa Remix" exhibition which toured Germany, England, France and Japan is considered to  have been the first to provide a significant overview of contemporary art, specifically African, focusing on the wealth of Sub-Saharan African art. But now Africa itself has acquired contemporary art centers, festivals and biennials emphasizing the talent of today’s artists.
