Malala Andrialavidrazana, an artist shown in Paris

Friday 11 September 2020

Malala Andrialavidrazana is an artist who has been involved with AAD since 2015 and the launch of the first pan-African traveling exhibition, “Lumières d’Afriques“. Born a traveler, Malala Andrialavidrazana is a Malagasy artist who is interested in the notions of barriers, interactions and mutations in intercultural contexts of globalization. She explores the social imaginary and engages in a plastic relationship with the world to better try to decipher it. Her work could be likened to a visual anthropology as she probes the links between personal history and cultural identity, intimacy and universality.


Discover the mischief and subtlety with which the artist approaches the subject of cultural mixing by visiting the exhibitions “Les echos du monde” (Fondation H, Paris), “Collector #4: 10 women artists” (Galerie Dilecta, Paris) and “Global(e) Resistance” (Centre Pompidou, Paris) where the artist is exhibited.


The Fondation H recently inaugurated its new Parisian venue, entirely dedicated to culture and contemporary art from the African continent and the Diaspora. To celebrate its opening, the Fondation H – Paris has decided to highlight the talent of the international artist Malala Andrialavidrazana, godmother of the place, through her personal exhibition “Les Echos du Monde“. The artist’s series Outre-Monde (2003), Insomnia (2009-2010), Echoes (from Indian Ocean) (2011-2013) and Figures (2015-in-progress) can be seen there until October 31, 2020.


The exhibition “Collector #4: 10 Women Artists” of the Dilecta Gallery (Paris) is the fourth part of a series of exhibitions initiated in 2018, which aims to make the public discover the richness of the works of this gallery. You can admire a work by Malala Andrialavidrazana until September 19, 2020.


The exhibition “Global(e) Resistance” offers a panorama of artistic creations from the so-called “Southern” scenes and aims to examine contemporary strategies of resistance. One of the works in the series “Figures” by artist Malala Andrialavidrazana is on display. This work, and to a greater extent, this exhibition, confronts our gaze with a part of history often set aside. “Global(e) Resistance” can be seen at the Centre Pompidou until January 4, 2021.
