Scramble for Africa Image
Looking Both Ways: Contemporary Artists from Africa is a major exhibition of the most current works by 12 artists from Africa who live and work in Western countries, including Belgium, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Portugal, the United Kingdom, and the United States. It examines the relationships between shifting physical contexts, emotional geographies, ambition, and freedom of expression while focusing on the increasing globalization of the African Diaspora.

The exhibition creates a forum where artists, through their work, address themes of migration, assimilation, exclusion and identity. This is a cutting-edge, contemporary art exhibition organized by the Museum for African Art, New York.
