Festival

Our flagship community outreach event and a celebration of contemporary music and art.

Africa is home to some of the world’s most talented photographers whose style has developed from documenting the streets and popular culture into a diverse contemporary practice.

 

The digital exhibition will depict African portraiture and the great diversity of this tradition. A series of curated images will morph into an animated display, inviting the viewer to dive into a 3-dimensional space while being immersed in an exploratory cultural and historical journey. Aesthetics and styles will be featured from photographers such as award-winning Malick Sidibé, and rising-stars Mario Macilau, Aida Muluneh, Joana Choumali and Omar Victor Diop.
