Featuring a stunning collection of Sub-Saharan African masks, sculptures, figures, and decorative art labeled as Senufo, the exhibition includes nearly 170 works of art from museums and private collections from across the world, many of which have never before been publicly displayed.

The app includes…

  • An immediately available preview video of the exhibition with the museum’s Curator of African Art, Constantine Petridis
