Where: 111 Front St. suites 206, 230, DUMBO, Brooklyn, NY 11201
The exhibition, “Images of Women in Contemporary African Art”, is a selection of works which show/depict the condition of women in Africa. The works show images of beauty, joy, pleasure, and sadness. They also show images of women as victims of rape, torture and other forms of sexual exploitation.
The works leave the inescapable conclusion that African women live difficult lives. They are the strong workforce of the continent—at home, in the fields, and at the marketplace. Although there is an emerging image of the modern, educated woman, who has begun to make a significant impact in politics and other professions, she is in the minority. For the vast majority everyday is filled with hard work under very hard conditions.
We hope that you will join us as we pay this tribute to Africaâ€™s pillar of strength
