Dak’Art is the major biennale of contemporary art in Africa. It provides a platform for art professionals and sets forth the artistic trends in Africa. It is a space of legitimation of African artistic creation, being a place of meetings and theoretical questionings about art and aesthetics in Africa. The 11th Dak’Art will take place from May 9 to June 8, 2014 in Dakar, Senegal.

The International Exhibition of African and African diaspora artists is the main event of the Biennale. The selection is entrusted to the curators of Dak’art 2014:  Elise Atangana for selecting the diaspora,  Abdelkader Damani for North Africa, and Smooth Ugochukwu Nzewi for sub-Saharan Africa.
