Exhibition: Making Africa at the Albuquerque Museum

Showcasing the work of more than 120 artists and designers, "Making Africa: A Continent of Contemporary Design" illustrates how design accompanies and fuels economic and political changes on the continent. Africa is presented as a hub of experimentation generating fresh approaches and solutions of worldwide relevance and as a driving force for a new discussion of the potential of design in the 21st century.

The exhibition focuses on a new generation of entrepreneurs, thinkers and designers from and within Africa, who, as "digital natives," address a global audience and provide the world with an unexpected vantage point on their continent. Okwui Enwezor, advising curator for "Making Africa," states that "the future belongs to Africa, because it seems to have happened everywhere else already."

"Making Africa" can inspire us to view the maker and design community in Albuquerque with greater respect and in relation to a global economic and creative movement," says Andrew Connors Albuquerque Museum's curator of art. "The diverse cultural traditions of the continent of Africa, which consists of more than 2,000 languages and cultural groups, have led to astonishing contemporary combinations of heritage and ingenuity, and the resultant fashion, graphic design, furniture, photography, and video are some of the most interesting being created today."
