Opa-locka Community Development Corporation (OLCDC) presents “Africa: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow” an exhibition focused on a dialogue between established African artists born on the continent and those living in the Diaspora. Drawing on post-colonial themes, artists explore a range of issues such as national identity, economic disparity, spirituality and migration in various styles and mediums. The encounter aims to address ideas evolving out of diverse colonial conditions where artists continually adapt, quote, and critique European strategies and representations of Africa.
