Journeys and Destinations: Contemporary African Artists on the Move

January 30, 2003 – November 30, 2003

Museum: African Art Museum

Location: Point of View Gallery, Sublevel 1

This exhibition features the work of six contemporary African artists and explores the important histories of migration and the negotiations of artistic, cultural, personal, and group identities among African artists who make up the growing and significant diaspora of practicing artists now living in Europe and America. Whatever the reason for relocating, they are renewing and redefining traditions and understanding of African artistry.

Featured artists include: Kwesi Owusu-Ankomah, Ghana; Ouattara Watts, Cote d'Ivoire; Bright Bimpong, Ghana; Amir I.M. Nour, Sudan; Osi Audu, Nigeria; and Ali Omar Ermes, Libya.
