On our London Photo 2020 booth, we choose to show a preview of our exhibition "Colors of Africa" with 5 photographers from the continent : Hassan Hajjaj (Morocco), Thandiwe Muriu (Kenya), Ebuka Michael (Nigeria), Derrick Ofosu Boateng (Ghana) and Nyaba Ouedrago (Burkina Faso)
The goal of our gallery is to make a world tour of contemporary art.
After presenting Japan, Morocco, Mexico and China, 193 Gallery comes back to Africa to present a new generation of photographers.
Hassan Hajjaj (Morocco), Thandiwe Muriu (eénya), Derrick Boateng (Ghana), Ebuka Michael (Nigeria) et Nyaba Ouedraogo (Burkina Faso) use certain codes to free themselves from them.
They grind, explore, play with the limits of photographic material. In fact, they structure their compositions in order to better shake up the unconscious and offer us a new aesthetic thought, embodied, at the confluence of the Africas.
Between Moroccan pop, the tribute to the beauty and modernity of African women by Kenyan Thandiwe Muriu, the identity reflections of Nyaba Ouedraogo and the explosion of colors of the new generation of photographers using the iPhone, represented by Derrick Boateng and Ebuka Michael,
“Colors of Africa” celebrates a certain positive philosophy of life, steeped in vitality and hope.
