"Making Africa: A Continent of Contemporary Design" showcases the work of over 120 artists and designers and illustrates how African design accompanies and fuels economic, social, and political change in the continent. Through sculpture, prints, fashion, furniture, film, photography, apps, maps, digital comics, and more, the exhibition presents Africa as a hub of experimentation that generates innovative design approaches and solutions with worldwide relevance. Organized by the Vitra Design Museum and the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, "Making Africa" focuses on a generation of entrepreneurs, thinkers, and designers from and within Africa who address a global audience and provide the world with a new vantage point on their continent. Ranging from playful to provocative to political, their work often breaks conventional barriers between disciplines and expands the potential of design in the twenty-first century.

For more information about this exhibition, please visit the Making Africa website.

This exhibition will be on view in our Butler Gallery, located on the ground floor of the museum.
