Supporting contemporary art from DR Congo

We showcase visual artists who live and work in DR Congo, both established international artists, and young emerging artists. Angalia offers them support, notably by travelling on a regular basis to Kinshasa. Angalia’s local foothold has been strengthened since 2014 by a partnership with the Texaf-Bilembo Cultural Centre, through which the work of the artists is regularly exhibited in Kinshasa.

Angalia

a Swahili word meaning “to look, to see and to observe".

All the works that we showcase have been bought directly from the artists starting in 2007, the year when the founders, Pierre Daubert and Karin Barlet, started to support the first artists. The gallery was formally created in September 2011.
