15 DECEMBER 2019 | THE FIGHT OF THE CENTURY exhibition


As part of a satirical challenge to iconic figures of power, Congolese artists Steve Bandoma and Amani Bodo have accepted to get in the ring to celebrate the 45th anniversary of the Fight of the Century, the legendary boxing match of 1974 opposing the undefeated world champion George Foreman to Muhammad Ali in Kinshasa. This original and exciting idea comes from Kloser Contemporary Art digital art gallery, in collaboration with Angalia.  The ten works you will discover in this show have in common their depiction of the illusion that power can induce. The paintings evoke several narratives exploring the transitory essence of power, its visible-invisible state, its blind ignorance, its relativity, its burden, its solitude, its violence, its self-involvement and its satire.
