exhibition: Georges Adéagbo (Benin), The Defense..!

Georges Adéagbo lives and works in Cotonou and Hamburg. He has been acclaimed as one of West Africa’s foremost artists ever since his contribution to Documenta in 2002 called, “The explorer and the explorers facing the history of Exploration. The World-Theater…!” . His installations have been exhibited in Europe, the two Americas, and even Japan, but remained virtually unknown in West Africa itself. He builds his installations up from artefacts, objects trouvés from everyday cultures, as well as from illustrations and sculptures that he orders from sign-painters and form wood-carvers.

2 exhibitions in Leiden: Photos on Senegal by Loïs Diallo & African portraits in weaving

Exhibition on the Third floor: Photos on Senegal by Loïs Diallo. Loïs Diallo's photo exhibition is inspired by the beauty of Senegal. The first time she visited Senegal, in particular the Island of Gorée in 2010, she was deeply impressed by the country and its inhabitants. She thinks Senegalese people show that richness has nothing to do with what you own. Exhibition in the ASCL Library: African portraits in weaving. The ASCL Library is pleased to exhibit a series of hand-made weavings of African portraits, made by Celine Michel.
