11 August - 25 November
Kehinde Wiley in ‘Beyond Borders: Global Africa’, at University of Michigan Museum of Art, Michigan, USA
Featuring contemporary and historical artworks from UMMA's African art collection as well as private and public collections, ‘Beyond Borders: Global Africa' challenges the way we collect, research and display African art. Exploring topics from colonisation and migration to racism and African identity, the exhibition asks what it means to make ‘African' art and to be an ‘African' artist today. This exhibition includes Kehinde Wiley's, ‘On Top of the World' (2008).
