REVUE NOIRE MAGAZINE
Revue Noire was a quarterly printed magazine dedicated to African contemporary art, published from 1991 to 2001 by Editions Revue Noire.
Revue Noire was founded in 1991 by Jean Loup Pivin, Pascal Martin Saint Lóon, Bruno Tilliette, and Simon Njami. Their goal was to give high-quality printed attention to contemporary African art. The magazine covered varying subjects including sculpture, painting, photography, dance, theater, music, and literature. Images were combined with informative texts that highlighted artistic responses to the international media and the tourist gaze as well as the production of discourses of cultural identity on the continent, the framing of the African body, urban sites, and the rapidly changing dynamics between African aesthetic values and Western influences.
