This month, the first exhibition by Wolfgang Tillmans in Africa will make its debut at the Musée d’Art Contemporain et Multimédias in Kinshasa. Organized by the Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen (IFA), a German institute for international and cultural relations in Stuttgart, Wolfgang Tillmans: Fragile features more than 200 works spanning 1986 to 2017, and includes installations, video works, and publications in addition to photographs by the artist.
The exhibition will travel to Nairobi in April 2018, and to Johannesburg July–October 2018. An accompanying publication in English and French will feature a local contribution at each venue. In Kinshasa, contributors include Christine Eyene, N'Goné Fall, Bart van der Heide, Ashraf Jamal, and Patrick Mudekereza.
