The meeting place for collectors and lovers of art and design from Africa

In the continuity of its 1st edition, all types of contemporary expression will be in the spotlight (sculpture, painting, photography, installation and design).

AKAA asserts its identity as an art fair on a human scale and its stature as a commercial and cultural platform. It allows one to discover the breadth and diversity of emerging and established artists from Africa and its diaspora, as well as artists inspired by the continent.

Les Rencontres — A cultural forum based on exchange and reflection

Once again Les rencontres AKAA are the opportunity to hear the voices of those who make the contemporary art scene from Africa, inviting the public to come and meet artists, curators and experts and to dialogue with them.
