…Putting Ethiopian artists on the map
Founded in 2016 by Rakeb Sile and Mesai Haileleul, Addis Fine Art is a pioneering gallery based in Addis Ababa and London.
Listed as one of the “Most Important Young Galleries in the World” (Artsy 2019), it is the very first local white cube space and international platform based in Ethiopia. The gallery focuses on highlighting modern and contemporary fine art from the Horn of Africa region and its Diaspora.
Since the Gallery’s first art fair participation at the Armory Show, New York in March 2016, Addis Fine Art has been invited to over thirty international art fairs and now attends 8-10 fairs a year, including Art Dubai, Cape Town Art Fair and 1:54 Contemporary African Art Fair.
Through the quality of its represented artists and its unique position as the only Ethiopian gallery active on the international circuit, Addis Fine Art is quickly becoming one of the leading galleries from Africa. It has been lauded for facilitating critical engagement with the local and mainstream art markets and championing an underrepresented, yet, rich space in modern and contemporary fine art.
The gallery is set to relocate to their permanent new space in South Kensington’s Cromwell Place on 27th October, with an exhibition of Ethiopian modernist Tadesse Mesfin.
“Pillars of Life” will be Mesfin’s first-ever European solo show, which will run until 15th November. For further information, visit http://bit.ly/AFAxCromwellPlace.
