Contemporary African Art Gallery in Paris
Directed by Olivier Sultan, Galerie Art-Z has been working for twenty years to promote contemporary African artists. With the creation in 2002 of the “Musée des arts derniers”, and the regular organization of exhibitions and auctions, Art-Z has contributed to the emergence of several major players in this new contemporary art scene (eg Soly Cisse, Bruce Clarke, Evans Mbugua or King Massassy).
Located in the heart of Paris in the Bastille district, Art-Z is a place for artistic exchanges and exhibitions on contemporary Africa. The upcoming opening of a gallery dedicated to African photography in Arles, will contribute to offer even more visibility to these original and indisputable talents.
Arle in Paris
As part of the Parcours Arles in Paris, initiated by the Art-Z Gallery, we present twelve photographers who, far from pretending to reveal an “authentic” Africa, offer us an inventory of their Africa, a sum of glances crossed with a instant. Here, there is no exoticism, no voyeurism, but only photographic vignettes never untouched by influences, both Western and African.
