JOHANNESBURG - The exhibition of contemporary African art

To know and make known the  contemporary African art in the continent where it was born, not only in international showcases in London, Paris or New York: This is the idea behind Joburg Art Fair, an event that this year brings together some of  the most successful and promising sub-Saharan artists.


The exhibition was inaugurated  the last two days, at the Sandton Convention Center in Johannesburg.


This is an opportunity to admire or to buy photographs, sculptures, paintings, videos and installations by masters or emerging artists from Cameroon Barthélémy Toguo to Malick Sidibé from Mali, the South African Mary Sibande Portia Zvavahera, originally from Zimbabwe. According to Ross Douglas, the curator, "too often African artists have to go away from the mainland to find a market."
