It also invitesus to reevaluate our concept of what is African. The works represent several generations of artists who have penetrated international circuits in recent years. Frdric Bruly Bouabr (Ivory Coast) serves as the starting point for a dialogue between the local and the global with works that challenge every possible preconceived idea about tradition and contemporaneity. In turn, these establish a harmonious dialogue with the works of other artists such as William Kentridge (South Africa), Viy Diba (Senegal) and Touhami Ennadre (Morocco), and with those of younger artists who experiment with the full range of media (photography, video and film), such as Emeka Udemba (Nigeria), Marie Blanche Ouedraogo (Burkina Faso), Otobong Nkanga (Nigeria), Romuald Hazoum (Benin) and Soly Ciss (Senegal). Artists: Ammar Bouras, Modou Dieng, Mbongeni Richman, Buthelezi, Touhami Ennadre, Frdric Bruly, Bouabr, Moustapha Dim, Soly Ciss, Frances Goodman, Otobong Nkanga, Abdoulaye Konat, Chri Samba, Romual Hazoum, Marie Blanche, Ouedraogo, William Kentridge, Djibril Sy, Bodys Isek Kingelez, Miguel Petchkovsky, Moshekwa Langa, Emeka Udemba and Ammar Bauras.
