The African art collective, Cyber Baat, is about to launch its inaugural exhibition. As such, the “Distorted Reality” series will showcase the talents of 23 emerging artists of African descent.
The exhibition is a physical gallery held in Dakar, Senegal, in conjunction with the Foundation’s NFT auction. The series will showcase fascinating artworks that serve as a window into the minds of some talented African artists and, therefore, as an interpretation of the reality they experience every day.
Cyber Baat is the brainchild of Senegalese artist Linda Dounia, who noticed a lack of representation from her home country. Therefore, she decided that it was time to do something about it. With this vision, she has amassed some of the best young talent in the African art scene and will put art lovers on the express train of their imagination.
A huge focus for Linda is to support the next generation of artists, harnessing this raw talent and guiding them through the turbulent art scene. She believes the talent pool of African artists is somewhat overlooked and has plans to increase their overall exposure in the world. Looking ahead, Linda plans to set up CyberBaatDAO to leverage the blockchain and fund future ventures.
The Cyber Baat exhibition launches on September 16 in Dakar, Senegal. Online auctions will follow on the Foundation Marketplace.
