Eclectica Contemporary’s presentation for this year’s FNB Art Joburg is a celebration of pan-African creative practice with a focus on color, texture and afrocentric identity. Showcasing artists from the Congo, Kenya, Nigeria, Egypt and South Africa, the group of artists all contribute to the ongoing dialogue of contemporary African portraiture.  These varied renderings make many statements, ask many questions or simply makes us pause to look at them. That the portrait exists and will outlast its subjects  is sufficient. Eclectica Contemporary is excited to participate online and all works are available to view on Artsy, launching 27 October and running for an extended duration until 7 November.
