August 2005 arrivals

Dear African Art lover,
 
Well August will be probably quite calm, but you can already prepare for the Zemanek auction and the Kaos Fair in Paris in September and the Taf Fair in Amsterdam in October, and if you feel like travelling, go for the "Arts of Africa" summer exhibition by Ezio Bassani in ‘Monaco-Arts of Africa’.
