Kings of KinMoké Kingelez Samba 12 September 2020 - 30 April 2021
Natalie Seroussi Gallery and the MAGNIN-A Gallery join forces to show three Congolese artists from Kinshasa: Bodys Isek Kingelez, Moké and Chéri Samba. These three artists have gone through all the political changes of their time. They grew up in the Belgian Congo, became recognized painters while the country was taking the name of Zaire, and experienced the birth of the Democratic Republic of Congo. At the heart of these hopes and torments, they created singular works that respond to each other to the point of forming an artistic trio.
