Contested Terrains

Tate Modern has gone all African in its latest show in the Level 2 Gallery: Contested Terrains, curated by Tate Modern and the Centre for Contemporary Art in Lagos (CCA). Tate has the notion that novel modern art is to be found in Africa. There are four artists in the show. This example is Adolphus Opara's Orisa Egbe [deity of destiny] Mrs Osun-yita from Emissaries of an Iconic Religion 2009. The others are Kader Attia, Sammy Baloji and Michael MacGarry. Entry is free. Might be worth a look in your lunch hour. Click the title link.
