What is contemporary African art ?

Contemporary African art can be defined as creative work from the recent past and the present day. Its sources are rooted in precolonial, colonial, and postcolonial history. The precursors of the 1930s should be taken into account in view of the openness they introduced with regard to traditional “tribal” arts. The notion of contemporary art, which emerged in the 1960s, encompasses the diversity of the continent’s artistic output.


Whether self-taught, trained (often informally) in collective workshops, or academically trained at an art school or a national or international university, contemporary African artists use all kinds of media—painting, sculpture, photography, installation and video. Their thematic range encompasses social and political issues and reflects a commitment to community values. Their work is characterized by freedom of expression, means of production, and hybridization.
