A dream stopped dead

“We may be alone in creation, but to help, we are never alone as an artist”, affirms Abdoulaye Konaté , a Malian artist famous for his superb paintings made of dyed fabric coupons. One of them, 2 meters by 1.5 meters, in shades of blue and gray, is priced at 29,000 euros for this online sale.

Like Abdoulaye Konaté, it was all the artists of Lend me your dream who got involved. This large traveling exhibition was brought to a halt by the health crisis at its stopover in Abidjan. It is struggling to restart, the sponsors having canceled or suspended their financial contribution, and the money raised is partly intended to allow the works to continue the planned trip to Madagascar.

"A question of survival"

But it will also serve to help African artists who are in difficulty by the pandemic, as Abdoulaye Konaté underlines: "Almost everything has stopped. There is almost no contact between the public and the artistic production. There is no entry of money for artists. I know some who can't afford the rental of their house or the drugs. For some, it is really a question of survival. »

The organizers of the sale hope to provide grants of 3,000 to 5,000 euros to nearly 300 artists selected for their creation projects.

The Africa Unite pan-African charity sale is being held from October 28 to November 5, 2020 for the benefit of the African Cultural Fund and the Foundation for the Development of African Culture.
