Galerie Magnin-A

Starting Sunday 2023

Almost ten years after the Beauté Congo exhibition at the Fondation Cartier pour l'Art Contemporain, which covered almost a century of creation, the Modern Congo exhibition at the MAGNIN-A gallery from 14 October will focus exclusively on works produced between 1930 and 1960, some of the most exceptional and rare works recorded to date. It will bring together some fifty works, some of which have never before been shown to the public, from two distinct periods: the modern artists (1927-1932) and the so-called "Hangar artists" (1946-1954), the precursors of contemporary painting in Central Africa.
Written in complete freedom, this history was the fruit of chance and necessity. The chance of contacts between men, Congolese and Europeans, separated by their roots and their culture, and the need to follow the thread to present what the artists had produced: a sum of masterly works testifying to the artistic ardour of the Congo.
