Through a path exploring contemporary creation in all its forms, the exhibition examines relations between today’s art and old African arts. What common memory is there in work carried out in the studios of Annette Messager, ORLAN, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Chéri Samba, Alun Be, Théo Mercier or Emo de Medeiros? What have the now-classic African references become in the world of globalised, visual consumption? How have they come back to life? What political or social meanings do they bear when revived by Myriam Mihindou, Kader Attia, Romuald Hazoumé or Pascale Marthine Tayou, who have made new works of art for Africa Reborn?
