Galeria Avenida da Índia
Kiluanji Kia Henda

It is the first major solo exhibition dedicated to Kiluanji Kia Henda (Luanda, Angola, 1979), one of the most relevant artists and activists of African origin in the contemporary art scene. The exhibition, which features a series of sculptures and installations created indoors, in France and Sardinia, and some previous photographic works, is formulated as an observation about the Mediterranean world with a double meaning – an apparently paradisaical idyll that reveals the presence of its opposite. In the artist’s new pieces, the beauty of the Mediterranean landscape contrasts with the architectural features of the Cold War and with the contemporary history of this region between Europe and Africa, a place of migration and social injustice.

Tuesday to Friday, from 11 AM to 1 PM / 2 PM to 5 PM, Saturday and Sunday, 10 AM to 12 PM
