Greeting visitors in the museum’s entry pavilion, select pieces from the museum’s permanent collection reveal the skill and range of African artists who create art empowered to counter physical, social, and spiritual problems. Works of diverse materials and expressive styles might contain medicines, draw upon the power of the divine, or address such global issues as the HIV/AIDS crisis.
Opening in 2017, the museum is transforming its largest gallery into a showcase permanently dedicated to works of art from its world-class collection. This new exhibition promises to be a thoughtful and beautiful experience featuring masterworks from ancient to contemporary times. Watch this space for more information and details soon.
