AGNES Talks: With Opened Mouths

Qanita Lilla, Associate Curator, Arts of Africa introduces the exhibition With Opened Mouths.

The exhibition interrogates conventional museum practices by remixing African sculptural face masks from the Lang Collection with art by contemporary Nigerian Canadian artist Oluseye. It asks if objects that originate outside Western knowledge-making systems can find their voices in new ways.

With Opened Mouths is on view 7 August 2021–January 2022.
