ReSignifications

June 6 - October 28

Resignifications, invokes classical and popular representations of African bodies in European art, culture and history. Curator Awam Amkpa confronts the depiction of African bodies in various forms of service – as domestic servants, courtiers, soldiers and priests – with audacious presentations of such bodies as protagonists of histories and cultures. The exhibition combines styles across time and place to reframe and refract the history of representing African and African diasporic bodies.

Presented by New York University. Curated by Awam Amkpa.
