Frankfurt’s Sakhile&Me Gallery focuses on supporting artists and researchers from Africa and its diaspora.

Sakhile Matlhare, the co-founder of Frankfurt exhibition space Sakhile&Me, considers herself equal parts educator and gallerist. After earning a PhD in sociology at Northwestern in Chicago, Matlhare decided she wanted to create a space to offer a sustainable platform to artists of the African diaspora. She founded Sakhile&Me with Daniel Hagemeier in 2018.

Since the space’s inception, a collaborative approach has been key. Rather than representing a roster of artists, Sakhile&Me has aimed to support a broad network of creators and researchers by investing in solo and small group exhibitions not only at their own space, but also on the African continent and abroad through art fairs and educational workshops.
