Design for Mobile Living: Art from Eastern Africa


June 29, 2016 - November 27, 2016

This exhibition presents the art of eastern Africa's nomadic societies in order to explore the ways in which mobility shapes creativity and artistic form. Unlike monumental sculpture found in societies that settle in one place, the artworks presented in this exhibition are lightweight, portable, and almost always associated with the body. They were created by nomadic cattle herders whose lives were defined by a near-constant state of movement across the lush highlands, dry savannas, and sparse deserts of eastern Africa.
