The virtual exhibition "Africa: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow" is a dialogue between established African artists born on the continent and those living in the Diaspora. Drawing on post-colonial themes, these artists explore a range of issues such as national identity, economic disparity, spirituality and migration in various styles and mediums. All works on view draw from the William Karg Collection of African Art. 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.

"What is Contemporary African Art" features artists Laurence Lemaoana (South Africa) and Georgina Maxim (Zimbabwe/Germany) and moderator curator and historian Tumelo Mosaka (South Africa/NYC). This virtual discussion can be viewed here.

"Agency, Subjectivity, and Space in Modern/Contemporary African Art" features artist and art historian, Thembinkosi Goniwe (South Africa). This virtual talk can be viewed here.

"Interpreting Art at All Ages" allows children of all ages engage with works of art from the exhibition "Africa: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow" through observation and critical thinking skills. Submissions will be published on the Art in Opa-locka website. This virtual program can be found at this link.
