panafest fine art exhibition post-africanism



Fine Art Exhibition

August 1-7 | 10am - 8pm | All Ages

This is an assemblage of personalities, concepts, ideas, processes, materialities, and much more. Uniting these artworks subtly, and in unexpected ways is their 'Africanness,' however one chooses to define that quality or state. The exhibition thus explores the various ways in which these artists think of themselves and their work in the contemporary era.
