african art exhibitions in stunning venues.

 

The African Art Series are specially curated pop-up art exhibitions set in stunning venues around the UK, to celebrate the unprecedented rise in appreciation of African art globally.

The Series was launched with a three day exhibition in the exquisite ambience of the Grand Ballroom at Bvlgari Hotel in Knightsbridge London, in collaboration with Sotheby's, on 7th to 9th October 2021.

 

The exhibition showcased artwork from new and established artists from Africa, and the African diaspora, to reflect the increasing interest and appetite for contemporary African art.  The event was a success and it is highly anticipated that the Series will be a catalyst to the conversation on the emergence of African art, as an exciting new landscape for investment, with new generation collectors and seasoned art connoisseurs alike.

The African Art Market.

Demand is high for contemporary African Art.  

 

Over the past decade, contemporary Art from Africa has seen a dramatic rise in interest inside the global art scene. Artists, sculptors and photographers from the continent have gained increasing attention and international acclaim amidst soaring prices, as private and institutional buyers, hope to see the same growth trajectory and price rises, as was seen in the contemporary Chinese Art market. 

 

A recently found painting by a Nigerian artist, Ben Enwonwu, sold at seven times its valuation, for $1.4 million at Sotheby’s. The breadth of African artwork; paintings, sculptures, prints, and photography in different genres emerging from the continent, is therefore now capturing the attention and imagination of both new and discerning art collectors around the world, more than ever before. 

 

The African Art market is also stimulating intercultural dialogue and discussion,  driving the call for more discourse on diversity in the creative industries.  The aim of this series is therefore to bring the joy and pleasure derived from the authentic opulence of exquisite African art to new audiences - in beautiful locations around the world.

A New Perspective On Africa.

The African Art Series is birthed from extensive experience of the African luxury consumer industry, and a passion to inspire new perspectives on Africa.  In October 2019, the TAAS team, in partnership with Financial Times, and The Luxury Network (Nigeria Office), facilitated a high-profile panel discussion, to explore the changing perception of Africa's biggest economy; Nigeria, on the global business stage. The event was held at the Connaught Hotel in prestigious Mayfair.
 
The event titled An Inspiring Conversation on the Future of Luxury: Spotlight on the business of luxury in Nigeriawas designed to stimulate fresh conversation about the growth and appetite for luxury in Nigeria.

Contemporary African art presents an exciting platform to further drive the Africa X luxury narrative.
