REFRACTION: NEW PHOTOGRAPHY OF AFRICA AND ITS DIASPORA - STEVEN KASHER GALLERY, NEW YORK - 19 APRIL - 2 JUNE 2018

The artists in the exhibition portray Black bodies in acts of cultural mediation. They revive the traditional African rites of masking, costuming, quilting, body ornamentation and invocation of spirits.

They merge cultures past and present, looking towards a more inclusive, harmonious future.
