The beauty of holding events in a gallery is the opportunity to enjoy the rich diversity offered by the variable backdrop of artwork on display. Saatchi Gallery has recently opened Pangaea II: New Art from Africa and Latin America, showcasing emerging artists and offering an insight into the complexities of their homelands, two continents once conjoined as the prehistoric landmass of Pangaea.
Exploring the social and political issues encountered during this period of rapid urban and economic expansion, the exhibition comprises painting and photography with a small amount of installation and sculpture, providing event planners with series of spacious and flexible galleries.
Runs until 6 September. Artists include: Dawit Abebe, Aboudia, Eduardo Berliner, Jean-François Boclé, Armand Boua, Pia Camil, Alida Cervantes, Virginia Chihota, Alexandre da Cunha, Federico Herrero, Diego Mendoza Imbachi, Eddy Ilunga Kamuanga, Jorge Mayet, Ibrahim Mahama, Boris Nzebo, Alejandro Ospina, Ephrem Solomon and Mikhael Subotzky.
Witnesses to the transformation of their societies, the artists are based within cities that are changing at an unprecedented rate, a factor which is reflected by the hybrid of traditional and contemporary techniques and materials employed. Contact Bubble for more information.
