Director Cole introduces Africa Underground

“At the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art, we look forward to launching" Africa Underground," an exciting way to celebrate the ties between Africa and the African Diaspora, and for our museum to continue a vigorous conversation with communities in the Diaspora. 

It is particularly significant that our first " Africa Underground" event focuses on the African continent and Brazil at a time when through our exhibition, "artists in Dialogue 2," there is an artistic and cultural dialogue going on between two artists, Sandile  Zulu from South Africa, and Henrique Oliveira from Brazil.

Do come to Africa Underground where you will enjoy art, food, music and dance of Africa and Brazil, and leave with a deeper appreciation for the diverse and dynamic visual arts of the continent that is the cradle of humanity.” -- Dr. Cole, Director, Smithsonian National Museum of African Art.
