Lagos, Accra x Kumasi, Cape Town, Kinshasa, Addis Ababa and Marrakech take centre stage as we examine the relationship between art, artists and cities and show the role of art and artists in city-making, especially in Africa. Each city is a starting point for examining the featured artists’ works and various societal issues. The publication is visually attractive and features contributions by well-known critics and young voices championing art from the continent and the diaspora.

The special section features Sandra Mbanefo Obiago, Odile Tevie, Elana Brundyn, Victoria Mann and Armelle Dakouo, leaders of outstanding platforms and foremost organisations dedicated to enabling artists and art practices in Africa and African diasporas. These women are mostly behind the scenes and an example of a broader network of female professionals whose work propels African art to be more visible locally and even globally. They make it possible for forgotten modernists to reach a new and young audience and for contemporary African art to be experienced in innovative environments. Their projects drive the visibility of women artists and uncommon narratives, and they make it possible for artists to earn a living while sustaining the world’s quest for meaning through art.
