Abstract

IncarNations is at once a mix and exchange between classical and contemporary art from Africa and its diasporas, looking at African art as a living philosophical practice. The masks, images and historic objects act as milestones, anchoring contemporary works in the ancient context of live creation. Taken from Sindika Dokolo’s collection, the works of African artists enter into dialogue with those of the diaspora while contemporary works are presented alongside classical works.
