A late opening exploring African photography, fashion, style and identity. The evening looks back to image makers who captured the spirit of post-independence African nations from the 1960s, and forward to a new generation of 'Afropolitans' – global tastemakers whose sensibilities are rooted in their African identities. The main entrance will be transformed into a North African salon by Moroccan photographer and designer Hassan Hajjaj. Visitors can also have their portrait taken in a recreation of a West African studio.
