Moniker Art Fair
Creative Debuts is a platform based in London which celebrates the brightest emerging artists and designers from around the world. Born out of frustration, their aim is to make art more accessible and to tackle the hurdles faced by undiscovered creatives. At Moniker, they present a unique roster of emerging African artists, many presenting in the USA for the first time.

Retro Africa Presents Generation Y
The Working Theme for the exposition is “Generation Y”. This Expo will attempt to touch-on contemporary issues through the eyes of millennials. Generation Y. intends to capture the zeitgeist of one generation through art. Millennials are a demographic cohort routinely described as rule-breakers, notorious creatives, dreamers, a generation plagued with delinquency.
This expo will highlight the youths interpretation of culture. It will answer the following lingering questions: what does culture mean to young artists? How is it perceived in contemporary times?
To celebrate International Women’s Day, Creative Debuts have joined forces with Nasty Women New York, Amsterdam, Lisbon, North East, and London to celebrate the work of international feminist artists.
Expect to see a range of contemporary artwork including photography, sculpture, craft, fine art, and film whilst raising money for End Violence Against Women.
