Join us for March First Friday as we celebrate the public opening of The Ease of Fiction, curated by Dexter Wimberly.

The Ease of Fiction presents the work of four African artists living in the United States as the foundation of a critical discussion about history, fact, and fiction. On view March 3 – June 19, 2016. The artists, ruby onyinyechi amanze (b. 1982, Nigeria), Duhirwe Rushemeza (b. 1977, Rwanda), Sherin Guirguis (b. 1974, Egypt), and Meleko Mokgosi (b. 1981, Botswana), present recent paintings, drawings and sculptural works that explore issues of cultural identity, personal agency, and the very notion of “African art.”

First Friday at CAM includes Middle School Docents from Underwood Elementary School, Creation Station activities inspired by the exhibition, DJ, music, food trucks and donation bar
