A preview to the 13th edition of the DAK'ART Biennale that begins in Dakar, Senegal, today.
Today marks the beginning of Dakar's 13th Biennale of Contemporary African Art, DAK'ART, under the patronage of Senegal's President, Macky Sall, Ministry of Culture, and Secretary of the Biennale.
The city of Dakar has hosted this notable month-long event since 1992 and this year will be no different with 500 million CFA francs dedicated to ensuring it goes off without a hitch. The fair includes 75 artists from 33 countries around the world exhibiting in official museums, theatres, galleries and other edifices all over the city. They will come from far and wide to display their work on a grand-scale metaphorical stage. Where DAK'ART will offer these artist's visibility, it will offer its international audience a renewal of black consciousness.
