From the African Art in Venice Forum 2019

Revue Noire (1991-2001): the magazine of contemporary African art
Thirty years ago very few African artists or photographers were known on the international art scene. Revue Noire, the magazine of contemporary African art (1991-2001), radically changed that, giving much needed attention to contemporary creators from Africa and the Diaspora, simultaneously challenging the perceptions of the continent. Roundtable discussion with the original team.
