It is with great sadness that we announce the premature death of Kiripi Katembo Siku.
Like every young artist, Kiripi had many projects in his mind. But these projects were no idle talk. Kiripi lived his dreams and he may, wherever he sees them now, be proud of them: the first edition of the Biennale in Kinshasa in 2014 was set up under his initiative. He also took an active role in the "Beauté Congo" exhibition at the Fondation Cartier in Paris.
At Africalia, we knew Kiripi well, we have (...)

Last October, Paul Brickhill died. Paul’s Harare based Pamberi Trust Brickhill founded in 1997. Jackie Cahi, an old time friend of his, sees the Book Café’s opening this way: “He was a musician and an artist. By then Luck Street Blues was formed. Paul created spaces where he wanted to be – where there was music, food, conversation, people”.
