Exhibition "Nege Piassa" [fr]

The Ambassador of France, H.E. Mr. Rémi Maréchaux, inaugurated on Friday, November 13, 2020, at the Alliance Ethio-Française, the photographic exhibition "Nege Piassa " (piassa tomorrow). A great turnout of people signed the resumption of the activities of the Alliance Ethio-Française and the links with the Ethiopian partners.

The title of this exhibition refers to this pivotal moment, between past and future, of a city undergoing profound change. It speaks to us about the heritage, history and memory of a mythical neighborhood of Addis Ababa, according to a creative approach, by associating photography and painting. It testifies the capacity of art to question the social, economic and urban transformations that cross our present. This is also the purpose of our cultural cooperation: to foster the conditions for public discussion and exchanges on the issues at stake in our present situation.

The project associates 3 photographers, Eyerusalem Abera, Haymanot Honelgn, Sébastien Cailleux, and a painter, Wendigamegn Gashaw. The exhibition was co-produced by the Alliance Ethio-Française and Art school in the village, with the support of the Delegation of the European Union in Ethiopia.
