The ambitious step taken by the Cartier Foundation and the curator André Magnin has been highly praised by the media, with comments including “a vibrant and shimmering wave”, a "highly-coloured and musical” exhibition, “on the edges of modernity, humour and pop culture”, a reflection of a “bubbling art scene”. They are showcasing 90 years of art in DR Congo with the Beauté Congo-Congo Kitoko exhibition.

The exhibition marks a milestone and showcases the vibrancy of contemporary art in the country.  Steve Bandoma, Pierre Bodo, Chéri Chérin, Papa Mfumu’Eto 1er, JP Mika and Kura Shomali are some of the artists with artworks in this brilliant retrospective. Four of them attended the official opening reception and were able to chat with the large number of visitors in attendance. The opening reception was a rare chance to interact. Find them on RFI, France 24, TV5 monde, Le Point Afrique, Le Monde Afrique... And don’t miss Beauté Congo!
