These five pairings of works from the Princeton University Art Museum collections aim to broaden discussions about Africa’s place in global art history. Bringing together works by African and European artists, they reject the Africa-Europe binary and instead prompt intercultural conversations about the history of art and its markets, the intersection of art and identity, and shared connections of faith. Installed from February through June 2018 in the Museum’s European and Medieval galleries, the works within each set are meant to be viewed in dialogue with one another.
