Art Paris Art Fair
We are very proud to announce our participation in Art Paris Art Fair at the Grand Palais in Paris with our format AtWork. From March 30th to April 2d, at the booth F19 we will present the selected AtWork notebooks made by students during 4 years of workshops in Africa and beyond.
Four years of AtWork’s journey, the intimate stories from ten different cities across the world coming together in an exhibition at the Grand Palais. We wanted to showcase them all, but we had to make our choices, selecting two notebooks from each AtWork experience done so far: Dakar, Abidjan, Kampala, Cairo, Modena, Addis Ababa as well as from Manama, Florence, Venice and Milan.
We entrusted this delicate task to our partner and a talented Egyptian artist Amira Parree, who has made her selection and will be curating the exhibition display for us.
The 19 selected works will feature the following AtWorkers: Samar Aleskafi, Mahlet Birhanu Gebre, Raffaella Carillo & Charlotte Ashcroft, Leon Chong, Abdel Kader Diakhaté, Defcon3 & ELLEmentare, Melania Fusco, Mohamed Keita, Hailu Kifle, Antonin Lagarde, Ian Mwesiga, Miriam Namutebi, Serge Nemlin, Yfke Ossentjuk, Federika Ponnetti, Nadeen El Rashidy, Nourhan Refaat, Boubacar Sonko, Ali Swar.
For most of the artists this is the first time to be exhibited in Paris and we are happy to give them this opportunity, introducing this new generation of thinkers and creators to international audience of Art Paris.
Along with the emerging artists we will also have the pleasure to welcome 2 special guests.
The artist Joel Andrianomearisoa has just realized two notebooks for lettera27’s art collection , one if which is going to be exhibited at our stand. Titled “The Complex Horizons of love” Joel’s notebooks are the perfect representation of his unique aesthetics and is the first step in our mutual collaboration with the aim to bring AtWork format to his native Madagascar.
On March 30th the prominent Italian performer artist Romina De Novellis will realize an exclusive performance at our booth, creating a new “interactive” notebook for our collection.
