Wakpon

An interactive exhibition that takes you to a museum in Benin... thanks to Magic Pictures!


 

In September, Alliance Française du Cap is opening its gallery to something slightly different: Wakpon, an interactive art exhibition that lets you visit a museum in Benin via an app and 10 Magic Pictures! You read that right: visit a foreign museum, no flights or pesky airport security required!

Wakpon will open on Thursday 6 September 2018 at 18:00 at the Alliance (155 Loop St, Cape Town). For a better experience, please download the Wakpon app to your device before coming; it is available for free on the App Store and the Play Store.

 

ABOUT WAKPON
Created by the Fondation Zinsou, a private foundation in Benin, Wakpon takes its users, wherever they are in the world, on a journey to discover 10 contemporary artists, whose work is featured in the Ouidah museum collection, and offers them a totally new experience.

Thanks to 10 eye-catching Magic Pictures, Wakpon takes the artwork off the walls of the Ouidah museum and out to meet the public.

The Fondation Zinsou created Wakpon to act as a springboard for the popular diffusion and universal recognition of Contemporary African Art so both the app and exhibition are free. For a better experience, please download the Wakpon app to your device before coming; it is available for free on the App Store and the Play Store. Come discover a new way to experience art!
