No Such Place: A New Exhibition in NYC Asks “What Is African Art?

Okay Africa   in  ·
March 10, 2015

NO SUCH PLACE: Contemporary African Artists in America is a new group exhibition at New York City’s Edward Tyler Nahem Fine Art featuring contemporary African artists currently living and working in the United States. The show pushes back against lazy categorizations of “African art” as a homogenous genre by examining the work of eight artists within the context of art-making in the diaspora. The works in the exhibition address the fluidity of each artist’s identity, and their output serves as a conduit for representing their “Africaness” in addition to their individual points of view and the varied influences that shape their work.
