Recent Histories
New Photography from Africa

9/22/2016 — 12/17/2016

Dj 4245 5 Walthercollection Jasse Délio Terrenoocupado

Recent Histories is the third exhibition in The Walther Collection's series on contemporary photography and video from Africa and the African Diaspora.

It features work by Simon Gush, Délio Jasse, Lebohang Kganye, Dawit L. Petros, and Zina Saro-Wiwa, figures from a new generation of lens-based artists dedicated to exploring African narratives from a diversity of perspectives. Common to their disparate practices is the use and embellishment of documentary modes to portray the vicissitudes of modern life. Engaging an array of concerns – including migration, lineage, the legacies of colonialism and Calvinism, and local custom – their works are so finely attuned to the broader contexts in which they have been made that they might also serve as veritable, if fragmentary, records of our time.
