The Divine Comedy: Heaven, Purgatory, and Hell Revisited by Contemporary African Artists

Museum: African Art Museum
April 8, 2015 – August 2, 2015

Curated by the internationally acclaimed writer and art critic Simon Njami, this dramatic multi-media exhibition reveals the ongoing global relevance of Dante Alighieri’s 14th century epic as part of a shared intellectual heritage. Including original commissions and renowned works of art by approximately 40 of the most dynamic contemporary artists from 19 African nations and the diaspora.

Celebrated artists explore the themes of paradise, purgatory, and hell with video, photography, printmaking, painting, sculpture, fiber arts, and mixed media installation. In so doing, they probe diverse issues of politics, heritage, history, identity, faith, and the continued power of art to express the unspoken and intangible. The exhibition includes Christine Dixie's installation The Binding, which is part of the museum's permanent collection.
