'The Global Africa Project'

Joel Andrianomearisoa, Nontsikelelo Veleko and Meschac Gaba at Museum of Arts and Design

An unprecedented exhibition exploring the broad spectrum of contemporary African art, design, and craft worldwide, 'The Global Africa Project' premieres at the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) on November 17, 2010. Featuring the work of more than 100 artists working in Africa, Europe, Asia, the United States, and the Caribbean, the exhibition surveys the rich pool of new talent emerging from the African continent and around the world. Through furniture, architecture, textiles, fashion, jewelry, ceramics, and basketry, as well as selective examples of photography, painting, sculpture, and installation work, the exhibition actively challenges conventional notions of a singular African aesthetic and identity, and reflects the integration of African art and design without making the usual distinctions between 'professional' and 'artisan'.

17 November - 15 May
