Crisis of presence: François-Xavier Gbré

16 September 2016 - 29 January 2017

François-Xavier Gbré is participating in the group show “Crisis of Presence” at Pori Art Musem, Finland, from September 16th, 2016 to January 29th, 2017.

The “Crisis of Presence” exhibition project serves as an interpretative model for a thematic analysis built around the works of different contemporary artists active in the European, African, and American environments. European colonial history and its effects on migratory flows both past and present, the legacy of real socialism in Eastern Europe and Cuba, the new influence of Asian capitalism in the Third World as well as the economic and political crisis in Europe and the concurrent global rise of authoritarian right-wing politics, all these are among the main themes addressed by the featured artists.
