NEW EXPOSITION

IN GENEVA

“The Dakar School” was created in 1960 by President Senghor. It was headed by MR. Iba Ndiaye - a famous painter, then by Pierre Lods founder of the school of Poto-Poto in Congo Brazzaville. Many recognized artists have come from this school.

It advocates a certain freedom to create and has enabled the establishment of an environment favorable to art and culture in Senegal.

ART - GENEVA

Art fairs

"In ten years of continuous development and consolidation, artgenève has established a high-quality contemporary and modern art fair in the Lake Geneva region which has met with international echo.
artgenève welcomes international galleries and also devotes a large place to institutional and private collections as well as to independent spaces and exhibition curators, convinced of the dynamism that can arise from the dialogue between galleries and institutions.

The tenth edition of the show will take place on January 2022. "

Top ten contemporary artists.

"Compared with artists in neighboring Asian countries, Japanese artists, it is often said, tend to cultivate their creativity within a closed (and relatively smaller) ecosystem. Working under social oppression and stagnation, Japanese artists have developed distinctive art scenes across the country. 

While Japanese contemporary art—especially from the post-war period—has attracted attention around the world and has been researched and contextualized within global art history and international exhibitions, it seems that the recent narratives are still limited. The spotlight is frequently placed on only six “star artists”—

Yayoi KusamaLee Ufan, Tatsuo Miyajima, Takashi Murakami, Yoshitomo Nar and Hiroshi Sugimoto — who are successful internationally (and are currently celebrated in a show at Mori Art Museum in Tokyo). Therefore, the following list, while still failing to cover many prominent artistic practices, is intended to sketch out divergent Japanese streams of contemporary art." Artsy
