From the Publisher. Confronting contemporary African art’s awkward coexistence with earlier African art as “ethnographic artifact,” Geo-Graphics celebrates the flourishing of African art on the international circuit, while simultaneously asserting its ancestry and critiquing the valorization of heritage. David Adjaye’s photographs of African capitals and an examination of contemporary African art centers further contextualize the continent's recent cultural transformations. Catalogue of an exhibition held at Center for Fine Arts, Brussels, June 9–September 26, 2010, as part of the Visionary Africa festival. Includes essay by David Adjaye, artistic director of the exhibition.
