FACE2FACE ethiopian contemporary arts
January 27-29, 2012: Exhibition – FACE2FACE, LeLa Gallery, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
For three days, Friday January 27, Saturday January 28 & Sunday January 29 LeLa Gallery will host a unique exhibition of original artworks taken from the FACE2FACE exhibition currently on display -High Definition Prints- at the African Union on the occasion of the AU Summit.
Commissioned by the European Commission and BOZAR, Brussels, FACE2FACE features recent works by Tewodros Hagos, Tamrat Gezahagne, Mulugeta Tafesse, Mulugeta Gebrekidan, Michael Tsegaye, Ermias Kifleyesus & Behailu Bezabih.
Curated by Leo Lefort this exhibition has been conceived as an open dialogue between audiences, artists and institutions. Upon the invitation to ‘invade’ the pavilion conceived by visionary architect David Adjaye and independent curator Simon Njami, FACE2FACE participates supremely to the incremental platform, by opening a space for seven Ethiopian contemporary artists.
JANUARY 27, 28 & 29 from 10.00am to 7pm.
Meet the artists at LeLa gallery on Saturday @ 4pm.
