In Conversation: Borders in the Age of Globalization

More than ever, ideas cross geographic, generational and ethnic boundaries, even at a time when national borders are becoming increasingly impenetrable. Beyond Borders: Global Africa reflects on this moment by considering the arts of Africa and how they have been shaped by, and have contributed to, conversations taking place across the world. Join exhibition curator Laura De Becker for this first look at the dynamic and influential qualities of contemporary African art and discuss works by leading artists such as Kudzanai Chiurai, Yinka Shonibare and Serge Alain Nitegeka, among others.
