Europa Oxalá

AfricaMuseum, Tervuren / 07 October – 05 March

The travelling exhibition ‘Europa Oxalá’, held at the Gulbenkian Foundation between 4 March and 21 August 2022, has travelled to the AfricaMuseum in Tervuren, where it will be open until 5 March 2023.

The exhibition brings to this Belgian city some 60 works by 21 European artists whose family origins are in the former colonies in Africa. Born and raised in a post-colonial context, these are artists whose work has become central to contemporary European art, proposing a reflection on heritage, memory and identity.

The innovative and transnational nature of the work of these artists of ‘post-memory’ has profoundly marked the artistic and cultural landscape of the last two decades and the way some of them combine contemporary languages and traditional processes can be seen as an essential contribution to contemporary Europe. Through their works, ‘Europa Oxalá’ bears witness to the creative power of contemporary European cultural diversity, opening up new perspectives on the very notion of Europe.
