Kaleidoscope:  Bringing contemporary African Art into focus
February 5th to  February 28th 2020

An exhibition of some of Africa’s most talented and respected current artists in The Glasgow Academy’s West End campus.

An exhibition celebrating art, and in particular African Art, as a contributor to world unity, economy, culture and humanity. Humankind is known to have its earliest origin in Africa. Africans have since excelled in various art forms.  African art is known to have inspired international artists such as Modigliani, Picasso, Giacometti, Matisse, the Paris movement and many more; to this day African art remains intriguing, exotic and powerful.
