One of the most vibrant and interesting exhibits that I have attended this year is African Voices hosted by one of my favorite art galleries in town, Officine dell’Immagine.
The exhibition was entirely dedicated to the complex and multifaceted African artistic panorama: Safaa Erruas (Morocco), Mounir Fatmi (Morocco), my beloved Maïmouna Guerresi (Italy-Senegal) and Kyle Weeks (Namibia) pieces are showcased with their different yet dynamic views of the African continent. Each one of them with their characteristic form of art and thinking. Not only different views but also different languages adopted by the artists involved, whose works can range from videos to installations, from photography to sculpture. All these pieces were exhibited in Milan for the first time.
No need to say that I enjoyed it very much and I loved spending time in analyzing and interpreting the views of these incredible artists.
Officine dell’Immagine is not new to this type of event: I suggest that you follow them to keep informed on the new exhibits as personally I loved each and every one of them.
You can find some of my favorite pieces here and a special sustainable outfit for the event:
- Second hand short-sleeved jumper from Sézane on Vinted
- Vintage leather skirt from Vintage Como
- Vintage 80s boots from London Corner
- Second hand man blue shirt
- Vintage bag from Humana Vintage
- Vintage Mila Schon headscarf from Archetipo
- Handamde earrings from Metalica
Can’t wait for the next Officine dell’Immagine event (also I love the fact that every time we go we are always alone and can enjoy the whole gallery only for us!!)
