From March until September, one of the world’s leading centres of design, the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein will be exhibiting the work of over 120 artists and designers from across the continent.

Making Africa – A Continent of Contemporary Design, illustrates how design accompanies and fuels economic and political changes on the continent. Africa is presented as a hub of experimentation generating new approaches and solutions of worldwide relevance – and as a driving force for a new discussion of the potential of design in the twenty-first century.

From photography by Mozambique’s Mário Macilau to eyewear sculptures by Kenyan artist Cyrus Kabiru and furniture by Mali’s Cheick Diallo, Making Africa – A Continent of Contemporary Design looks like an exhibition for art and design lovers of all kinds to make a b line for!

Dak’art, Senegal’s premier contemporary art biennial returns to celebrate its 10th event this June!

Exhibiting the very best in contemporary visual arts from around Senegal and beyond, Dak’art has become an increasingly important platform for contemporary artists – not least in terms of international exposure. Excitingly, the event gives not only more established artists a piece of the pie, but offers Dakar’s residents the opportunity to exhibit their creativity too, through community organised events across the city. Dak’art is without a doubt a labour of love, and if you are based in Senegal, or are looking for a reason to visit, then this is one not to be missed!

For more information on the event, or on how to get involved (for both artists and the press), see the Dak’art website. http://www.dakart.org/
