IMAGING & IDENTITY: AFRICAN ART FROM THE LOWE ART MUSEUM AND SOUTH FLORIDA COLLECTIONS

Selections of the best works from the Lowe and other area collections demonstrate key characteristics of African art.

Attempt to "Identity" works take into consideration the fluidity of style, authorship, and usage that characterize artistic production in Africa. Organized by the LAM.
