AKAA Underground

© Lady Skollie – Courtesy Tyburn Gallery

AKAA UNDERGROUND has been conceived as a way to enrich the visitors’ experience through the creation of an art laboratory on the lower level of the Carreau du Temple. Here the public will discover a café presenting a program of workshops, artists meetings, book signings, performances and more…

For this first edition of AKAA UNDERGROUND in 2017, the South-African artist Lady Skollie has been given carte blanche to design walls of all the space. Young endeavors like Little Africa, Partnership Editions and Maison Château Rouge, which produce ever more innovative concepts and collections were also presented.

Come enjoy a drink of bissap juice and chat with one of the artists presented at the fair. Participate in a discussion on contemporary design in Africa, take a stroll through AKAA’s library or simply have coffee with friends and new acquaintances. We are waiting for you at AKAA UNDERGROUND.
