PICHA Stock in collaboration with Fujifilm SA, Cameraland Cape Town, BLQ, Ground Art Caffe, and sofacompany.com will launch the Future Focus Exhibition on December’s First Thursdays. This photographic exhibition aims to provide African photographers with a platform to prove that local creatives are more than capable of producing work worthy of global attention.
AFROFUTURISM: A movement in literature, music, art, etc., featuring futuristic or science fiction themes which incorporate elements of black history and culture.
Launching on the last First Thursdays of 2018, the Cape Town event will feature interpretations of the “Afrofuturism” concept by photographers from across the continent. The final selection of images has been curated by Daron Bandeira, Ghana-based art director and founder of the contemporary creative platform, Afrobougee. Guests will also be able to enjoy a panel discussion with prominent local creatives as well as an Afrofuturism-inspired open shoot where photographers have the opportunity to shoot with a live model. All work will remain on display and for sale at sofacompany.com‘s Grand Showroom until 17 January 2019.
Identical exhibitions will launch in Nairobi, Kenya and Accra, Ghana in partnership with Quality Frames Kenya, Signature Lifestyle, USL Express & Furnart Ghana later this year.
