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.
