A Point of View

Africa on Display?

July 05, 2003, through February 22, 2004
In the usual museum setting, African art displays aim to enhance our understanding of the diverse cultures to which they belong. A Point of View addresses the idea that, by the very nature of museum viewing and displaying, African arts often can tell us more about ourselves and our relationships to other cultures than about the cultures they are meant to represent.
