Exhibition Catalogue

The cultural voices of the Ghanaian artists are juxtaposed against the rhythm and harmony of the African American artists. As in the tradition of African music, the Ghanaians extend the ancient “call,” eliciting a contemporary “response” from the African Americans. Through this cultural song, we discover the innate similarities derived from the ties of African ancestry— a bond which has not ceased by the separation of an ocean, a bond which continues through atavistic memory.
