Exhibition: "Pan-African Pulp: A Commission by Meleko Mokgosi"

When: Tuesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sundays, 12-5 p.m.

In Pan-African Pulp, Botswana-born artist Meleko Mokgosi explores the history of Pan-Africanism, the global movement to unite ethnic groups of sub-Saharan African descent. His Vertical Gallery installation, which inaugurates a new biennial commission program at UMMA, features large-scale panels inspired by African photo novels of the 1960s and ’70s, a mural examining the complexity of blackness, posters from Pan-African movements from around the world, including those founded in Detroit and Africa in the 1960s, and stories from Setswana literature.
