Contemporary Perspectives From Senegal

Featuring work created in the last 10 years, this exhibition offers a wide panorama of art practice from the perspective of artists who uncover aspects of their own identity as they reflect on contemporary life in Senegal. Collectively, their work acts as a portrait of how one African country can inspire creative minds, balancing universal questions with local characteristics.
