DAK’ART 2012: 10th BIENNALE OF CONTEMPORARY AFRICAN ART
Museum Theodore Monod, Dakar, Republic of Senegal

 

CURATORS: Christine EYENE, Nadira LAGGOUNE, Riason NAIDOO

THEME: " CONTEMPORARY CREATION AND SOCIAL DYNAMICS "
The tenth edition of the biennale is held in a particular context. Indeed, 2012 is an electoral year in Senegal as was 2000. This year also marks the twentieth birthday of the most former biennale of the African continent. DAK'ART is maintained as a key event in the international art calendar. The theme chosen for this edition is expected to examine through various angles the dialogue that contemporary artists maintain with a social environment which is in constant mutation. Contemporary creation and social dynamics, is a field of investigation which academics, art critics and artists are invited to explore in the context of the meetings and exchanges of the edition 2012 of the Biennale.

Emmanuel's manière noire stone lithograph titled "number 05000674PV" was selected by the curators for this exhibition from the TRANSITIONS MULTIPLES suite of lithographs. TRANSITIONS MULTIPLES is the second body of work from Emmanuel's Transitions Project.
