Statements of Intent, a Generation Provoked is the third instalment of a four part multi-faceted exhibition series titled As It Is! It is the first ever group exhibition presenting contemporary African art in the Middle East. Over four months As It Is showcases over 21 leading and emerging artists who articulate a progressively evolutionary break from European stereotypes about 'contemporary African Art.' The concepts for the exhibition is an artist-led ideology. It is about their narratives, their experiences of being Black artists expressing their identity. Statements of Intent, a Generation Provoked as an&nbsp exhibition, focused on a generation of contemporary artists working within Africa and in the Diaspora, at the cusp of their creative careers carving out a distinct place for their artistic&nbsp ideologies and gaining international recognition as a result.
