Transcending Boundaries

Rating

Lacey Contemporary Gallery are proud to be showcasing the work of 35 West African artists in 'Transcending Boundaries 2015' between 24 April to 11 May 2015.  An exhibition program conceived in collaboration with Aabru Art. 

 

For the 3rd consecutive year 'Transcending Boundaries' will showcase some of the best Modern and Contemporary Art from West Africa, and this year Lacey Contemporary Gallery is proud to be partnering with Aabru Art on the exhibition program.  The return of Transcending Boundaries highlights the growing importance of contemporary African Art in a year when La Biennale di Venezia is curated by its first African Director - Nigerian Okwui Enwezor.  Exhibitions such as last year’s Pangea: New Art from Africa and Latin America at the Saatchi Gallery have raised the profile of African art, which Aabru Art has been championing for the past 3 years with Transcending Boundaries.  

 

The Transcending Boundaries exhibition at Lacey Contemporary - a new Holland Park gallery supporting artists from emerging contemporary markets - will run from 24 April to 11 May (after a preview at Asia House).  As well as offering collectors the chance to admire and invest in paintings and sculptures in media as diverse as oil on canvas, wood and metal, the exhibition program will include a host of events to support the exhibition.

 

As part of the exhibition program, Lacey Contemporary will host; an artist’s talk (25 April); a charity event for ‘Safe Child Africa’ (8 May); and a fashion show (9 May) with emerging African designers. These events will highlight the thriving cultural life of Africa.
