Synopsis

Over the past two decades contemporary African art has become part of the global mainstream, inspiring countless exhibitions, art fairs and auctions around the world.



Today, African artists work outside the confines of limiting binaries and outdated perceptions; they produce art that is as much a reflection of Africa's tumultuous past as it is a vision of its boundless future. African Art Now is an expansive survey of work by young and emerging African artists from diverse locations, cultures and backgrounds. Far-reaching in its scope, this book draws together a wide-range of artistic practices to reflect the ever-shifting dynamics and possibilities of contemporary African art today.
