Weekend Art Picks, Identity Crisis
This week, New York's Museum of Art and Design opened an exhibit surveying a wide spectrum of contemporary African Art, Design and Crafts. Through painting, photography, architecture, ceramics, textiles, jewelry, furniture and fashion The Global Africa Project highlights the work of over 100 artists from the United States, Europe, Asia, The Caribbean, and of course Africa. The global scope of the exhibit is not only made evident by the geographic diversity of its artists, but the variety of styles and subject matter also challenge conventional ideas of a singular transcontinental aesthetic of identity.
