Since the last decade, biennials and art festivals are burgeoning inside Africa to promote contemporary African art and encourage tourism.

Art is no longer exclusively reserved for wealthy initiates or well-advised investors. People with small or moderate budgets could also reach an important share of the market. Each year, hundreds of thousands artworks created by modern or contemporary artists are sold at auction for an affordable price. Because of this huge choice, people can acquire significant works of art without spending a fortune. Although the art market is huge today, the actual number of contemporary artists that sell for high prices at auction is pretty small. In fact, the art market is only unaffordable by reputation with spectacular sales making the headlines all over the world.

Each part is grouped by decade and contains only exhibitions which have made an international impact.
