African painting has boomed in recent years. This reflects the self-awareness with which artists on the continent look at themselves and their position in the world. During this period, collectors Carla and Pieter Schulting acquired an extensive collection of paintings - supplemented by some sculptures and photographs - from all parts of Africa, giving a good overview of what African painting represented at that time . Many artists in the collection have themselves or their immediate surroundings as subjects for portraits, figures and genre scenes.
The exhibition features works by Joana Choumali, Hassan Hajjaj, Sesse Elangwe, Thandiwe Muriu, among 120 other artists from 33 African countries.
