“Afro-Atlantic Histories” features 450 works by 214 artists ranging from the 16th to 21st centuries and centered on the “ebbs and flows” among Africa, Americas, Caribbean and also Europe.
The exhibition aims to draw parallels and dialogues around the visual cultures of Afro-Atlantic territories – their experiences, creations, worshiping and philosophy. The so-called Black Atlantic (term by Paul Gilroy), is geography lacking precise borders, a fluid field where African experiences invade and occupy other nations, territories and cultures.
