This ambitious exhibition of African art objects drawn from the UMFA’s permanent collection centers on themes of the spirit world and the afterlife.
Africa: Arts of a Continent explores the spiritual and political power of Central African masks, the magic and mystery of ancestral African sculptures, and the enduring beauty of African objects used in everyday life. The installation debuts one of the UMFA’s newest acquisitions: a late XXVIth Dynasty Egyptian sarcophagus.
