On September 18th, the gallery representing Amoako Boafo, opened a new space at 18 Avenue Matignon in Paris, run by the French-Somali art dealer Mariane Ibrahim.

Jackson amongst others) to produce two works each for her first exhibition titled “J’ai Deux Amours”, in reference to Josephine Baker’s song that goes “J’ai deux amours…mon pays et Paris”.

Anish Kapoor converts Venetian palace into permanent exhibition space and workshop

The 18th-century Palazzo Manfrin will become the home to a collection of the British-Indian sculptor’s most significant works.

The space will eventually become the HQ for Anish Kapoor’s Foundation, and we can’t think of a better place to celebrate this iconic artist than in one of the most beautiful cities in the world!
