About Artskop3437

 

A space dedicated to expression and exchanges, prone to discover a land of innovative creation, Artskop sets Africa at the centre of discussions. Africa is a continent that continuously dialogues with many other cultures in the world, transcending ages and forms. A complex cultural diversity framed by two latitudes, 37° N and 34° S, under crossed influences, aiming to be seen by everyone. Artskop3437 is a manifesto: proposing a place to discover, understand; consider Africa, plural and global, through its creative Arts. Artskop3437 is a nerve centre, open to everyone, in which all galleries, artists, designers, museums, fairs, project spaces, art centres, amateurs can explore, learn, collaborate, collect, discover works and artistic networks that built this cosmopolite, creative and borderless Africa

Dialogue between artworks


Africa's Classic, Modern, Contemporary art and Collectible Design: all in one place

Because African art, ancient or contemporary, are either folklorised, or absorbed indistinctly in a highly globalised artistic production. Artskop3437 avoids this double pitfall and takes the stimulating path of openness: firstly, by adopting a large definition of arts from Africa; and secondly, by creating a place for encounters for everyone – professionals and amateurs – who wishes to discover the artistic richness of a booming continent

Because the art market has entered digital with success but the arts and galleries from the continent have little benefit of it yet. Artskop3437 wishes to favour promotion, diffusion and distribution of the cultural richness and artistic creation linked to Africa.

Database Project: learn about the African Art History and Aesthetics

Because there is still sometimes a lack of understanding of African art by international art lovers. Artskop3437 wishes to create a major collective database that would become an encyclopaedic research tool, putting in context every artwork present on the website. This “Artskop Data Base Project” will therefore be a source of information on the history of the African aesthetic in their entirely, including ancient and contemporary diasporas as well as artist having a connection to Africa, beyond their origin or geographies
