The View From Here

Contemporary Perspectives from Senegal

Featuring work created since 2010, this exhibition offers a wide panorama of art practice from the perspective of artists—individuals who uncover aspects of their own identity as they reflect on contemporary life in Senegal. Collectively, their work acts as a portrait of how one African country can inspire creative minds, balancing universal questions with local characteristics. 

À travers des œuvres créées depuis 2010, cette exposition offre un panorama des pratiques artistiques dont les perspectives font remonter la découverte des aspects divers du soi tout en réfléchissant à la vie au Sénégal. Ces œuvres en collectivité font un portrait des moyens par lesquels un pays africain peut inspirer les esprits créatifs, mettant des questions universelles en équilibre avec les caractéristiques régionales.
