Akwande: still coming of age

8 February - 30 March 2024

Welcome to Sakhile&Me

We are an art gallery based in Frankfurt/Main (Germany). Working with an international roster of contemporary artists, our program intentionally prioritizes Africa and her diasporas as well as African-American positions, with the goal of drawing attention to contextual specificity in and through art – in content, medium and genre.

We are committed to building a program that invests in our artists’ development and encourages audiences to come to a deeper appreciation and understanding of their work. You can visit our gallery during the regular opening hours and we also offer guided tours of our exhibitions which you can register for via the link below. Our space is located in downtown Frankfurt, directly opposite BHF Bank and in close proximity to the Opera House ("Alte Oper").
