Biennale Dak’Art 2018 : Open Call for Submissions

May-June 2018


The 13th edition of the Biennale de l’Art Africain Contemporain Dak’Art / Biennial of Contemporary African Art Dak’art will be held May–June 2018 in Dakar, Senegal. Following the establishment of the Orientation Committee, the call for submissions has been launched to select the artists for the IN section of the Biennial.


The Biennale of Contemporary African Art aims at being a space of different prejudice-free visions on approaches and inspirations to analyse in relation to a plurality of influences from both immediate and farther sources.

The environment itself is today characterised by its relative spatial limitations in spite of the strong influence of the immediate social environment. Dak’Art provides an occasion to fight the propensity to be prejudiced about contemporary art as expressed by some African creators by giving the floor to a different category of experts working at other levels of the visual arts world that refuse to confine themselves within some certainties and are concerned about a certain ethic.
