This online exhibition is a companion to the SIGHTLINES on Peace, Power & Prestige: Metal Arts in Africa exhibition and centers on the profound and generative relationship between historical African arts and material culture and the work of contemporary artists. Through seven themes (extraction, speculative architecture, currency, devotion, embodying power, domesticity, and protection), the site explores the diverse material worlds that these artworks inhabit, while highlighting their connections and the dynamic kinship they forge between the past and present.
