INVESTING IN CONTEMPORARY AFRICAN ART
Who are we?
An initiative to foster the emergence of young artists in DR Congo
Ébalé (meaning “river” in Lingala) is a company formed under French law in 2019 on the initiative of Angalia art gallery.
It has been devised as an art investment fund, which buys and then sells on artworks in due course, at a price that ensures the model’s financial viability. However, Ébalé has two special features which set it apart from a simple investment fund.
Impact investing applied to art
Ébalé is the result of a unique model bringing together an art gallery and an investment facility. The model seeks to address the issue of start-of-career funding for young artists.
