How do we represent a city in art? That's the question posed by Kinshasa Chroniques, an innovative new mixed-media exhibition that draws on the work of 70 young Congolese people to highlight the complexity and richness of the Congolese capital. Echoing the plurality of cultural activity and different ways of life that Kinshasa is made up of, the exhibition is not limited to one artistic medium. Instead, a blend of photography, comics, performance, video, painting, slam poetry offers multiple entry points for thinking about the urban space of Kinshasa.

The exhibition revolves around nine chronicles: performance, sport, appearance, music, capital, spirit, resourcefulness, future, and memory. The themes are diverse but do not aim to offer a comprehensive and exhaustive vision of Kinshasa; instead, they render a reading of the city as a melting pot of possibilities in which there are infinite modes of representation, with each one adding color, context and perspective.
