Countless Cities – Douala Pavilion

The exhibition gives evidence of the research and training currently underway at the LABA (Libre Académie des Beaux-Arts) art academy in Douala – Cameroon’s booming economic capital city – which aims to build a contemporary Cameroonian approach in the world of visual art, fashion, graphics and design.  On the occasion of the Biennial of the Cities of Favara Cultural Park, a selection of projects made within the framework of the CamON! program between 2018 and 2019 by students of the academy were exhibited.

The Xport exhibition addresses the issue of the complex relationship between tradition and innovation in Venice and investigates the relationships between urban space and design in the paradigmatic context of the city. A large conceptual video, divided into four sections, accompanies the viewer through the exhibition, where specularly to each section of the video four thematic areas are developed that host a symbolic object: the forcola, the murano glass, the lace and the mask.
