Post Paris: Rediscovering Africa | Maureen Quinn | Solo Exhibition at Art@Africa

March 6 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

MAUREEN QUINN SOLO EXHIBITION - POST PARIS: REDISCOVERING AFRICA

06.03.2019 – 30.04.2019

The exhibition seeks to explore the ways in which Maureen Quin’s trip to Paris inspired  her to rediscover her African roots and thereby benefiting her future work. The exhibition will showcase two of Quin’s series, Post-Paris 1988 and Interaction 2003. These series will be exhibited alongside one another to create an incredible overview of two of Quin’s most African inspired series. Her feelings towards South Africa, the soul, positivity and beauty of the inhabitants are reflected in these works.

Art@Africa hope to portray Quin’s rediscovery in conversation with themes on the positive African spirit, culture, inspiration and hope for an improved society. In a country that has been continually torn apart, Quin seeks to present the desires of the people to heal the wounds of the past and overcome suffering. The aim of the exhibition is to draw attention to the incredible inspiration Africa has on artists and present the strong link South Africans have with nature.
