Un lieu comme la Galerie Joseph, 650m2 d'espace épuré et chic en plein coeur de la capitale ne pouvait pas être mieux choisi. Des évènements comme celui, ou encore le 1:54 à Londres, Beauté Congo, AKAA prochainement, ne feront que booster encore et encore des artistes dont on a longtemps vu le potentiel seulement en tant que "Arts premiers" . Rendez-vous l'an prochain. http://www.africanartfair.org/
