The 193 Gallery is pleased to present two parallel exhibitions: El Peso de las alas, a solo exhibition by Esterio Segura, and We are enough, a group exhibition that presents the work of talented contemporary African artists.
El Peso de las alas features the work of one of Cuba’s most renowned contemporary artists: Esterio Segura. Migration and travel are at the heart of Cuban artist Esterio Segura’s work and the exhibition El Peso de las alas, brings together pieces from some of the artist’s most emblematic series, linked to the topic of travel. A multidisciplinary artist, Esterio evokes through his works the complex economic and social situation of Cuba, linked to the physical and psychological borders dictated by the geographical and historical isolation of the island.
We are enough is a call to deconstruct some of the stigmas that constitute African contemporary societies. A reflection that pushes to understand the impulses and limiting beliefs that prevent us from “dreaming big”. The exhibition is organized by AFIRIKA ARTFEST, a series of exhibitions dedicated to contemporary African art.
It is around a true passion for art associated with traveling and discovering, that 193 Gallery was born in 2018.
Through its artistic selection and strong scenographic proposals, the gallery, located at 24 & 21 rue Béranger in Paris, proposes the discovery of colors and matters, of the diversity and legitimacy of the world's artistic scenes. To defend creation and experimentation, the gallery carries a program of residence, while approaching at the same time an axis of international presence.
