Africa Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow presents an intergenerational dialogue between established African artists born on the continent and those living in the Diaspora including Ouattara Watts (b. 1957) Ivory Coast/USA, Viyé (Vita) Diba (b. 1954) Senegal, Tesfaye Tessema (b. 1952) Ethiopia/USA, Malangatana Valente Ngwenya (1936-2011) Mozambique/Portugal and others. Drawing on post-colonial themes, these artists deal with a range of issues such as cultural heritage, identity, migration and religion in various styles and mediums. While most works on view will draw from William Karg’s Collection of African art, the exhibition will expand to engage emerging artists from the African Diaspora. The encounter aims to address ideas evolving out of diverse colonial conditions where artists continually adapt, quote, and critique European strategies and representations of Africa.
