The pret-a-partager exhibition is a transnational artistic dialogue on fashion, sport, Africa and its Diaspora. These collected works take the varied meanings and possibilities of clothing and fashion as determined by society and individuals and explore
them*in myriad ways that go beyond their fimction as consumer goods or economic factors. The Dakar metropolitan area serves as the stage for the protagonists of a world in constant flux, where concepts of identity are fluid. The artists have utilised
the tapestries of their own history and familiarisation with new cultural practices to develop striking works, hybrid creations which are socially explosive.
