‘While it is very likely that many other emerging artists did not make the final cut for this particular book, Angaza Afrika provides us with a much needed introduction to artistic practice on the African continent today. We can only hope that it is the first of many more such publications to come.’

Judges’ comments:

“The Editorial Board of The Art Book and the Association of Art Historians have announced Angaza Afrika as the winner of The Art Book Award 2009.”

Angaza Afrika: African Art Now provides a feast for the eye, matching extensive colour illustrations with clear, contemporary book design. With a wealth of information on lesser-known artists and practices, this book makes a much-needed and valuable addition to resources on the diverse visual cultures of Africa. All in all, an appealing and accessible publication which highlights the complexities, richness and vibrancy of contemporary African art.
