AMERSFOORT.- Africa Supernova - Collection contemporary African paintings from the collection of Carla & Pieter Schulting will be on view at the Kunsthal KAdE in Amersfoort from 24 September to 7 January.

African painting has blossomd in recent years. It reflects the self-awareness of the continent's artists and the way they look at themselves and their position in the world.

Collectors Carla & Pieter Schulting have acquired a large collection of paintings - supplemented by some sculptures and photographs - from all parts of Africa during this period, giving an insight into what African painting is currently about. Many artists in the collection have chosen themselves or their immediate surroundings as subjects with portraits, figure pieces and genre scenes.

Works by over 100 artists will be shown. Cores are formed by artists from South Africa, Ghana, Nigeria, Ivory Coast, Cameroon, East Africa (Kenya, Uganda, Ethiopia) and North Africa. There is also a focus on artists from the 'diaspora' - United States, Brazil, Caribbean - with a link to the African continent. Although never complete, the collection gives a layered picture of how artists connected to Africa reflect on their self-image and how their imagination radiates to the whole world.

The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue (EN/NL) with texts by Azu Nwagbogu and Raphael Dapaah.

Kunsthal KAdE offers exhibitions in the field of contemporary/modern art, architecture, design and contemporary visual culture.
