May 27- June 19: Dance Africa Art Exhibit:::MoCADA::: and BAM

BAMart and the Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Art (MoCADA) have partnered again to produce an intimate exhibition coinciding with the 2010 Dance Africa Festival. Curated by MoCADA's Director of Exhibitions, Kimberli Gant, the exhibition is centers its theme on the 2010 Dance Africa theme of "African Rhythms, American Echos." Works by artists Bara Diokhane, Duhirwe Rushmeda, Francis Simeni and Ezra Wube, who all originally hail from various nations on the African continent, will be featured. Each artist will choose a piece from their oeuvre and pair it with a piece from BAM's own collection of predominantly American artists. The idea of letting artists select their pairing was a conscious curatorial decision allowing the artists to create a personal dialog. Exhibition will be on view from May 27 - June 19, 2010
