ART FROM THE HEART OF AFRICA
A COLLECTION of the newest art out of Africa will cross the Indian Ocean for the first time in a new exhibition at the PS Art Space.
Considered to be one of the largest contemporary African art exhibitions for the year, Another Antipodes’ Urban Axis will bring together more than 100 pieces of art from 47 artists who call countries like Zimbabwe, South Africa and Kenya home.
Co-curator Gerald Sanyangore said although the two continents had historical and cultural connections, Australia was yet to experience the best of African contemporary art.
“Urban Axis, as our first exhibition, lays the foundations for effective collaboration and artistic innovation across our two continents,” he said. “Perth and Fremantle occupy a unique central place between Australia, Africa and Asia and together have the capacity to play a pivotal role in cultural exchange between these three regions.”
Urban Axis is at the PS Art Space until July 22 and includes a program of talks, guided tours, master-classes, screenings and music events. Visit www.another antipodes.com for more information on the program.
