Time Out says

Displaying fragments of long-forgotten African trading centers and 250 artworks sourced from places like Mali, Morocco and Nigeria, the Block’s latest exhibit establishes West Africa as an overlooked mecca of medieval culture. “Caravans of Gold, Fragments in Time” explores how trade routes across the Sahara Desert brought African jewelry, textiles and religious objects to different parts of the world.
