THE GLOBAL AFRICA PROJECT

Ongoing at the Museum of Arts and Design, the Global Africa Project exhibition. It's receiving positive reviews from the New York Times, where a critic stated that the show
presents 200 works by nearly 120 people, teams and collectives. It represents artists, designers, artisans, D.I.Y. improvisers and people engaged in various combinations of those already fuzzy job descriptions, toiling in ways that blur aesthetics, sociology and philosophy
Read the full review here. MADmuseum also provided a very helpful Teachers Resource Packet designed for k-12 teaching but useful as a brief introduction to the artists and artwork. Above, an installation view of the exhibition, from the NYTimes.
