Established in 2018, AFIKARIS started online and became a showroom before settling down in Paris on Rue Quincampoix, situated next to Centre Pompidou. The gallery showcases works by emerging and renowned artists from Africa and its diaspora and aims to provide international visibility through exhibitions, art fairs, and collaborations with cultural institutions. The gallery strives to be a place for exchange and dialogue, engaging in conversation with the public. AFIKARIS amplifies the voices of its artists who speak to topical issues as well as subjects central to their work. More broadly, it is also a space for reflecting on the African contemporary art scene.
