'A Brave New World' at the African Art Museum

August 9, 2010 - April 24, 2011

The National Museum of African Art celebrates its 2008 acquisition of the mesmerizing, video-based artwork 'Brave New World II' (by Theo Eshetu) with a small, focused installation of contemporary works from its permanent collection that examines the theme of travel. In this new world, grainy film footage of dancers performing in a restaurant in Bali join stencils of body builders and prints named after Bob Dylan tunes to give vision to the very real, global experiences of African artists.
