“Still Free” by Francisco Vidal, at THIS IS NOT A WHITE CUBE booth S15 in 1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair

We are delighted to return to London for the 10th edition of the fair at Somerset House between 13 – 16 October 2022. This year’s edition will host 50 international exhibitors across 21 countries - its largest number of countries to date.

“I started developing the performance and series Still Free when the lockdown ended. We all left our homes – a gesture shared by all who inhabit the planet in 2022. In this contemporary pandemic, societies performed an exercise familiar to painters for a long time. That of existing within the “creative bubblea” of the studio. In 2020 and 2021, I did a lot of drawings and paintings related to “isolation & social media” and “collective hysteria”, themes much more specific than the most common ones in my paintings. When I realised that these subjects dealt with the individual bubble space versus an active social space, I decided to do an exercise sitting at the opposite end of the individual experience and isolation.”

14 October 2022, from 4 pm – 7 pm
