Exhibition - Bandiagara - at the Fondation Blachère Art Centre

From 04 April to 21 September 2024

The Blachère Foundation presents the exhibition "Bandiagara: at the beginning of the Blachère collection", a not-to-be-missed event at the Gare de Bonnieux. "An exhibition celebrating 20 years of contemporary art from West Africa".

It was in 2001, facing the cliffs of Bandiagara in Dogon country (Mali), that Jean Paul Blachère developed a visceral interest in Africa. A few years later, this interest was transformed into a commitment to the Art of Africa, culminating in the creation in 2003 of a corporate Foundation dedicated to promoting, supporting and disseminating the work of artists from the African continent.
In 2024, the Foundation is celebrating the 20th anniversary of its art centre with the Bandiagara exhibition, highlighting the work of 20 artists who have left their mark on contemporary art in West Africa over the last two decades. These artists are now major references on the art scene. The exhibition features emblematic pieces from the early days of the Blachère collection, as well as the collector's favourite artists. A not-to-be-missed event at the Gare de Bonnieux.

Open Monday to Saturday, 10am to 12.30pm and 2pm to 6pm. July and August until 7pm.
Air-conditioned area.
