The group exhibition The New African Portraiture. Shariat Collections
from November 19. 2022 to April 10. 2023, brings together leading figures from a generation of thrilling figurative artists of African origin. The more than 20 exhibiting artists - including Atsoupé, Souleimane Barry, Bouvy Enkobo and Gastineau Massamba - are based on the African
continent and across the diaspora. They explore complex questions of
identity, aesthetics and art history. Through compelling portraiture
their work invites interrogation of how the Black figure has often been
misrepresented or overlooked in the Western painting tradition.
