artists & participants
Africa Remix : Contemporary Art of a Continent is the largest exhibition of contemporary African art ever seen in Europe. Featuring more than 60 artists, the show includes painting, drawing, sculpture, installation, photography, film and video, many created within the last five years. Artists from 25 countries across the continent, from Algeria to Zimbabwe, are represented, as well as African artists now living in Europe and North America. The show includes new work by the outstanding South African photographer David Goldblatt; a spectacular eight metres high 'cloth of gold' made from thousands of bottle tops by Ghanaian El Anatsui; and an assemblage made from found materials by the Nigerian Dilomprizulike, known in Lagos as 'the junk man of Africa'.
Also at the Hayward Gallery, a commissioned selection of 60 tracks of current African sounds, from Algerian hip-hop to traditional Malian kora music can be heard on a jukebox in the foyer.
