La Galerie 38 displays its collection at the 5th edition of the 1-54 African Contemporary Art Fair in Marrakech, taking place from February 8 to 11.
The gallery features the works of Mohamed Lekleti from Morocco, Soly Cissé from Senegal, Barthélémy Toguo from Cameroon, and Abdoulaye Konaté from Mali.
La Galerie 38, founded in 2010, is a hub for emerging and established artists from around the world. It showcases contemporary art from national and international artists. The gallery organizes solo exhibitions and supports artists’ careers. It also embraces urban art, including street and pop art, and features celebrated artists.
The ‘Narratives’ exhibition in Marrakech presents a diverse range of artists’ works, extending beyond traditional forms of communication like speech or writing. The exhibition explores the power of storytelling through various mediums, including paintings, textiles, and drawings.
Artists like Mohamed Lekleti, Soly Cissé, Barthélémy Toguo, and Abdoulaye Konaté portray their unique approaches to storytelling. Lekleti’s use of chronophotography and Soly Cissé’s hybrid figures evoke emotional and imaginative responses, while Toguo’s politically charged art prompts societal reflection. Konaté’s Malian bazin embroidery exhibits his mastery of intricate beauty.
The exhibition, set against the vibrant backdrop of 1-54 Marrakech, offers a profound exploration of contemporary artistic discourse and the power of storytelling to bridge generations and cultures.
