Exit Tour: the Douala-Dakar of contemporary art

Set off from Douala the 27th of march, after Lagos, Cotonou, Lomé, Accra, Ouagadougou and Bamako, the artistic caravan reached Dakar the 13rd of may after several artistical meetings and borders incidents.

Exit Tour is a project of exhibitions, discoveries and exchanges throughout 7 countries of west Africa initiated by 7 visual artists from Cameroun. This project bornt in Art Bakery during artists residencies nearby Douala. Exit Tour is a human adventure unlike anything else but also a development of networks of artists and cultural actors which is going to weave across borders links between individuals and artistic institutions they met on the way.

No doubt, this human and artistical experience they presented with passion the 17th of may at Pencum-Goethe in Dakar, will nourish and enrich the reflection of Ginette Daleu, Lucfosther Diop, Justine Gaga, Dunja Herzog, Achilleka Komguem, Alioum Moussa, Goddy Leye… « Art doesn’t need any visa » is their motto. Let’s wish them to carry on and to go further in this remarkable project.
