Eclectica Contemporary’s exhibition for this year’s Investec Cape Town Art Fair is a celebration of pan-African creative expression, showcasing artists from South Africa, Egypt, Kenya, and Nigeria. Our selection of artists all echoes the vibrancy and energy of the African continent through expressive colors, textures, and design while contributing to the larger discussion of African identity. The work is diverse in conceptual and thematic grounding, with a focus on exploring techniques and interpretations of African identity. The exhibition will be a considered and cohesive space that invites viewers to engage with the intricate and dynamic works on display, both through their aesthetic appeal and fascinating back-stories. The Eclectica Contemporary stance on art is to highlight artists creating work from and of the continent and to share it on a broader platform that establishes networks of interaction, appreciation, and engagement. We celebrate the diversity and depth of art making on our continent while aiming to contextualize it for a growing global market.
