The View From Here: Contemporary Perspectives from Senegal

Curated by Joseph Underwood

January 17 - February 22, 2019

CVA Gallery (Center for the Visual Arts, 325 Terrace Drive in Kent)

Opening reception - Friday, January 25, 5-7 p.m.

Featuring work created since 2010, this exhibition offers a wide panorama of art practice from the perspective of artists—individuals 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. 

Artists: Laylah Amatullah Barrayn, Manthia Diawara, Khalifa Dieng, Ibrahima Dieye, Camara Guèye, Pap Souleye Fall, Fatou Kandé Senghor, Amalia Ramanankirahhina, Henri Sagna, Fally Sene Sow, and Ibrahima Thiam.
