The Fondation Cartier in Paris unveils “Beauté Congo”, an exhibition that captures the development of Congolese art from the 1920s to present day. 

“Beauté Congo – 1926-2015 – Congo Kitoko” is showcasing contemporary African art with an exhibition dedicated to the Congo, with constantly renewed inventiveness.

The exibition runs through 15 November 2015 at the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain in Paris. The survey spans 350 works by 41 artists, ranging from the birth of modern painting in Congo in the 1920s to the present day – and weaving in music, sculpture, photography and comic art.

The epic and ambitious display, curated by André Magnin, focusing largely on painting, the vibrant Congo exhibition also features music, sculpture, photography and comics in order to represent Congolese art in as diverse a manner as possible. Over 350 works have been included, most of which have been previously held in private collections and never displayed in public before.
