When I Say Africa: Photographs from the Continent Opening Reception
Sponsor(s): Duke Arts
Cost: Free; everyone welcome.
This selection of photographs by African artists offers an alternative vision of Africa. By documenting the agency and self-determination of contemporary Africans, When I Say Africa challenges the "voluntourism" urge prompted by mainstream imagery of a country in crisis. If photographs are doing this work of extraction, When I Say Africa aims to reframe our expectations of Africa, changing how we see the country, and ultimately, how we engage with Africans.
Type: VISUAL AND CREATIVE ARTS, AFRICA FOCUS, MULTICULTURAL/IDENTITY, EXHIBIT, RECEPTION, and FREE FOOD AND BEVERAGES
