Nigerian artists @ Newark Museum

A second installment of events around the "Expanding Africa" exhibition takes place tomorrow at the Newark Museum. Late last month the star authors Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Uzodinma Iwuala read from their works (at Newark Campus of Rutgers University), and tomorrow, three artists Osi Audu, Marcia Kure and Nnenna Okore will engage in a public conversation moderated by Christa Clarke, Senior Curator at the Museum. Newark is seriously expanding its African galleries and (modern/contemporary art) collection, and these programs are part of the buildup to the opening of its reinstalled African galleries, still a couple of years away. This is a shout out to Christa and her team!
