Sankofa: African Routes, Canadian Roots
The Museum of Anthropology (MOA) at UBC presents the exhibition Sankofa: African Routes, Canadian Roots, on display from November 4, 2021-March 27, 2022. The vital exhibition shines a light on the different ways of understanding the world through the lenses of African and Black communities by exploring the relationships between traditional and contemporary African art and Black Canadian contemporary art. The exhibition is a celebration of these diverse practices and the lasting legacy of African and Black Canadian artists. Sankofa is jointly curated by Nya Lewis, founder and director of BlackArt Gastown; Nuno Porto, MOA Curator, Africa and South America; and Titilope Salami, a PhD candidate at UBCs Department of Art History, Visual Art and Theory.
