Geo-Graphics: A Map of Art Practices in Africa, Past and Present

N/A (2010)

Confronting contemporary African art’s awkward coexistence with earlier African art as “ethnographic artifact,” Geo-Graphics celebrates the flourishing of African art on the international circuit, while simultaneously asserting its ancestry and critiquing the Valorisation of heritage. David Adjaye’s photographs of African capitals and an examination of contemporary African art centres further contextualise the continent’s recent cultural transformations.
