ATLANTICO: ANGOLA AND SÃO TOMÉ & PRÍNCIPE CONTEMPORARY
Circle’s first exhibition for 2020 is a group show featuring 11 artists from Angola and one from São Tomé & Príncipe; a combination of established masters & emerging artists living in Angola and the diaspora. ATLANTICO presents a cross-section of the varied practices developing in contemporary art from this geographical region of Atlantic Africa.

All the works embrace fiction and non-fiction; incorporating personal, political, economic, cultural, and mythological themes.

The exhibition is curated by Dominick A. Maia Tanner, producer-curator and gallerist at ‘ELA-Espaço Luanda Arte’.

He is also the founder of ´Angola AIR´ the country´s first artist-in-residence programme for non-Angolans artists and collectors.
