#SoCool #Art | A Paris Exhibition Celebrates The Congo as Visited by Fally Ipupa

A place of extraordinary cultural vitality, the Democratic Republic of the Congo is celebrated at the exhibition Beauté Congo – 1926-2015 – Congo Kitoko presented by the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain in Paris.

Taking as its point of departure the birth of modern painting in the Congo in the 1920s, this ambitious exhibition will trace almost a century of the country’s artistic production, depicting the energy in the city of Kinshasa through paintings, music, sculpture, photography, and comics, providing the public with the unique opportunity to discover the diverse and vibrant art scene of the region.
