A Closer Look: Black = Afrika exhibit

Photo of a detail of "Mbire 3" by Keba Konte features two sepia toned figures and copper discs stapled to the canvas

"Mbire 3," a painting by alumnus Keba Konte, can be viewed in its entirety (a detail from it is shown above) at "Black = Afrika: Visions of the Diaspora," a Student Center Art Gallery exhibit to commemorate Black History Month. The exhibit features work by Omiiroo, a Bay Area collective made up of six artists of the African diaspora. Their works explore the black experience in North America as it relates to African ideologies and legacies. The exhibit, curated by students Robert Melton and Andrea Ali, opens Thursday, Feb. 5, and runs through Tuesday, March 2, in the Cesar Chavez Student Center Art Gallery, located on the Terrace Level. An opening reception takes place from 5 to 8 p.m. Feb. 5. Gallery hours are Monday through Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Thursday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Admission is free.
