WORLD CULTURES FESTIVAL 2017 / FULL CIRCLE ART AFRICA IN HONG KONG

My works will be exhibited as part of the Hong Kong World Cultures Festival biennial via Full Circle Art Africa, from October 20 throughout November 5. The international festival will last until November 19.

 

Initiated by LEAP Initiative Philanthropies, Full Circle Art Africa acts as a close partner to the international festival themed “Vibrant Africa”.

 

The selected pieces will be showcased at the Cat Street Gallery, alongside the works of Art Director and designer Serge Mouangue (Wafrica) known for his famous collection of traditional Japanese kimonos made of Wax fabric.

 

In addition to the joint exhibition, Serge and I will take part in a round table that will highlight our respective approaches. We will also discuss the cultural bridge that we are trying to build between Africa and Asia through our creations.

 

Mainly dedicated to the performing arts, the biennial will host, among others, African stage artists including Beninese singer Angélique Kidjo, Senegalese singer Youssou N’Dour and the DAFRA Drum troupe from Burkina Faso.
