Created by Victoria MANN in 2016, AKAA is the first Contemporary Art and Design fair in Paris, France, that highlights connections of the “Global South”.

For the AKAA 2018 a major art installation by Susana Pilar, specially designed for the fair, was presented by Galleria CONTINUA. The contemporary artist from cuba explores her family history and specially her Sino-African roots, a subject that deeply characterizes her work: the black woman and self-consciousness.
