Travels With Herodotus: A Journey Through African Cultures
Curated by Domenico de Chirico, the exhibition, as the title implies, aims at giving life to an ideal journey of exploration through African contemporary art.
Through the comparison between the works of six artists belonging to different generations and countries – Gerald Chukwuma (Nigeria 1973), Jeremy Demester (France 1988), Ameh Egwuh (Nigeria 1996), Troy Makaza (Zimbabwe 1994), Boris Nzebo (Gabon 1979), and Monsieur Zohore (USA 1993) – the exhibition outlines an articulated, yet harmonious, portrait of the African art scene by means of an “exposition of research”, according to Herodotus’ interpretation of the word.
