Out of Africa GaLlery

title bg

Sorella Acosta, a contemporary art and antiques exhibition organizer in Brussels, and her husband Jacques Collaer, mountain guide and tribal art collector travel for over more than twenty years in West Africa. Fascinated by the customs and traditions of ethnic groups but also by the african contemporary art creativity, they launched on 15 April 2011 "Out of Africa", the first contemporary and tribal art gallery in the Spanish Pyrenees (Benasque - Aragon). After an impressive number of exhibitions and cultural activities highlighting the product of the over-enthusiastic imagination of contemporary African artists as well as ancestral culture and stripped-down art of ethnic groups in West and Central Africa, Jacques and Sorella decided on the 1st of June 2013 to move to Sitges, a cultural and artistic resort place at 35 km south of Barcelona. The Out of Africa gallery is growing with two high-quality collaborators: Antonia Ayala Fenoy (Public Relations) y Michel de Jong Vazquez (Assistant, Photographer and Webmaster).

Contemporary African Art

title bg

The Galleries day to day life is punctuated by periodic contemporary exhibitions to provide contemporary art lovers and art critics alike with the substance needed to keep them abreast of up to date African creativity. The "Out of Africa" gallery hosts a contemporary art exhibition four times a year, highlighting European artists, inspired by Africa, and emerging African artists, noted for their freedom of expression and the originality of their artistic language. Firmly focused on modernism, while at the same time remaining strongly attached to African values, our artists affirm that socio-cultural differences are a great source of creative wealth.

African Tribal Art

title bg

The diversity of traditional African tribal art shows great imagination and magical intensity, revealing the omnipresence of sacred and complex rituals: ceremonies where the definition of pure and impure is usually played out along with the perpetuation of lineage, the legitimization of alliances and the cohesive strength of the clan. As considered by the most passionate of collectors, the signs of wear on these objects lend them a magical power and aesthetic that other objects do not have. The "Out of Africa" gallery essentially presents objects from West Africa. They have all been selected on site with the utmost care and with great consideration for the objects’ relationship with their area of African origin and their consequent ethnological associations.

NEW ITEMS

 

A selection of tribal art pieces of high quality, whose authenticity, rarity, oldness and/or conservation are such that they belong to the more beautifull pieces presented by the gallery. These works were selected with a lot of care during our last travels in the most isolated villages of West and Central Africa and are worthy of a window of museum

Traditional African Objects

Time weathered traditional objects have a way of revealing very touching things about truly “popular” art from a time gone by. The "Out of Africa" gallery offers a selection of traditional and everyday objects found in West African villages, while respecting local habits and customs.
