We Write to You About Africa

Following years of research into the Museum’s and University of Michigan’s relationships with Africa and African art collections, "We Write To You About Africa" is a complete reinstallation and doubling of the Museum’s space dedicated to African art. Featuring a wide range of artworks—from historic Yoruba and Kongo figures to contemporary works by African and African American artists, such as Sam Nhlengenthwa, Masimba Hwati, Jon Onye Lockard and Shani Peters—the exhibition directly addresses the complex and difficult histories inherent to African art collections in the Global North, including their entanglements with colonization and global efforts to repatriate African artworks to the continent.
