We are pleased to have presented Dr. Adrienne Childs, co-curator of The National Museum of African Art's "Conversations: African and African American Art in Dialogue". The NMAA's Conversations brings together African and African American artworks in a visual and intellectual dialogue about particular cross-cutting themes, including, amongst others: Spiritualities; Power and Politics; Nature as Metaphor; and Music and Urban Culture.
