    Opening: 06. Juni 2017
    Duration: 07.Juni – 01. Juli 2017

    «Africa: The great feast» assembled by Barthélémy Toguo is a response to the so called "African spring" in contemporary art in France.
    The Cameroonian artist, nominated for Prix Marcel Duchamp in 2016, points out that the presentation of those artists form different African states will be much more than such a temporary fashion.
    Barthélémy Toguo’s intention is to create a solid foundation for the work of those selected artists, so that they get the chance to enter renowned galleries, became a natural part of the international art scene, and show their work next to the works of western artists, being no longer limited to second-class galleries.

    Therefore Barthélémy Toguo decided that the works of those artists should become an important part of his future exhibitions at those galleries who are representing his own work - starting with the exhibition "Africa: The great feast" on June 6th 2017 in Vienna, followed by "Strange Fruit" in October this year in Paris.

    At «Africa: The great feast» the works of the following artists will be presented:
    Blanche Agoumé (Cameroon), Atsoupé (Togo), Moufouli Bello (Benin), Doctrovée Bansimba (Congo), Ronald Cyrille (Guadeloupe), Vitshois Mwilambwe Bondo (RDC), Dorah (Cameroon), Mayumi Okabayashi (Japan), Guillermo Socarras Hernandez (Cuba), Gabriel Tégnéto (Cameroon), Tatgedes (Cameroon), Barthélémy Toguo (Cameroon), Guy Woueté (Cameroon) and Dominique Zinkpe (Benin).
