POLARTICS represents exciting emerging artists from Africa and its diaspora, exploring wide ranging themes such as youth, identity, sexuality and socio-economic issues. The gallery is dedicated to amplifying young voices and developing innovative and immersive ways in which art can speak truth to power, inviting (a diverse array of) audiences to critically engage with its artists. POLARTICS is committed to presenting its artists with passion and utmost care, prioritising the rigorous contextualisation of young contemporary art by artists of African descent.
