Regarding Africa: Contemporary Art and Afro-Futurism

Tel Aviv Museum, Israel

This large-scale group exhibition presents art being made today in, or about, Africa, from an Afro-futurist perspective that challenges traditional divisions: fantasy, imagination and cosmology, usually associated with past mythology, are incarnated into science fiction and futurist representation. The various narratives span between colonialism and its ramifications to a re-examination of the African body, landscape and culture—through utterances that shatter the usual distinction between truth and fiction, between myth and science, between technology and spirituality.


Published to accompany the exhibition at Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Israel, 8 December 2016 - 27 May 2017.
