The Tel Aviv Museum of Art's latest exhibition is a porthole into the works of African artists expressing their hopes for the future.

In 'Regarding Africa', the exhibition’s curator, Ruth Direktor, brings a striking, direct glimpse into the power of African creativity when defining themselves, with moments of joy, ensuring that even art novices will leave the exhibition with a lasting impression. For those more familiar with Afro-Futurism, Direktor has brought the genre closer to home, featuring works created in Israel. These reflections on Little Africa, composed of a growing community of immigrant workers and asylum seekers from Africa, in south Tel Aviv, express the merging of African and Israeli cultures.
