Tribal Art London previously held at the Mall Galleries in London, will this year be a virtual experience, allowing visitors from all around the world to meet the exhibitors, listen to lectures from leading institutions, and view and buy museum-quality tribal objects. Tribal Art London is known for its accessible nature showing masterpieces next to more moderately priced objects making it a must for the expert and novice collector.
Join this year’s Summer Exhibition Coordinator Yinka Shonibare and writer and broadcaster Afua Hirsch in this online event. They discuss his vision for the exhibition, the significance of reclaiming magic in art, and how an inclusive art world can engage with and value artists who have developed their practice in different ways. This year, Yinka Shonibare draws on the theme of ‘Reclaiming Magic’ to expand the conventional notion of art. Inviting self-taught artists, artists from non-Western contexts and artists with disabilities, he gives a platform to marginalised or overlooked practitioners who have historically been left out of a Western art narrative, bringing an exhibition that reflects the breadth and diversity of human expression.
