Feature of the Week
This vibrant artist community on the outskirts of Dakar serves as the studio for nearly 50 artists. They represent various disciplines—painting, sculpture, ceramics, video and installations. Founded in 1998 by the authority of the Senegal Ministry of Culture, the Village is truly a village unto itself. Situated on 10 acres within a walled compound, it stands apart from the crafts markets found in other parts of Dakar. The Village des Artes is dedicated to the creative arts, a testament to Senegal’s reputation for producing world-class artists.
There is some amazing work going on behind these walls. Much of it is distinctly Senegalese and African, as you’d expect. But the works also reflect contemporary influences not bounded by geography or history. We’ve cultivated relationships with some of those artists and we’re excited to offer their works here. And as you’re admiring their work please help us in supporting the vital role played by artistic communities such as Village des Artes.
