The Global Africa Project Exhibition

The Global Africa Project Explores the Impact of African Visual Culture on Contemporary Art, Craft, and Design around the World

Groundbreaking Exhibition Challenging Traditional Conceptions of "African" Aesthetic Opens at MAD this November

New York (April 14, 2010) - 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) this November. Featuring the work of over 60 artists in Africa, Europe, Asia, the United States, and the Caribbean, The Global Africa Project surveys the rich pool of new talent emerging from the African continent and its influence on artists around the world. Through ceramics, basketry, textiles, jewelry, furniture, and fashion, as well as selective examples of architecture, photography, painting, and sculpture, the exhibition actively challenges conventional notions of a singular African aesthetic or identity, and reflects the integration of African art and design without making the usual distinctions between "professional" and "artisan."
