June 14, 2006 – December 2, 2007

African Art Museum
950 Independence Ave., SW
Washington, DC

Location: South Skylight Gallery, Sublevel 1

This exhibition showcases and will rotate from the permanent collection a total of 40 myriad objects representing different cultures by 20 African contemporary artists. These artists used the human body -- directly or indirectly -- as a primary canvas for self-expression to explore the shifting perceptions about gender, age, ethnicity, authority, religion, history, and change.
