Interview with the Curator: Juxtapositions & Connections (VIDEO)

Time is running out to experience Senufo: Art and Identity in West Africa at the Cleveland Museum of Art! Through Sunday, May 31, delve deeper into the world of Senufo art: its identity, imagination, and impact. Featuring a stunning collection of Sub-Saharan African masks, sculptures, figures, and decorative art labeled as “Senufo,” the exhibition features nearly 160 works of art from museums and private collections from across the world, many of which have never before been publicly displayed. 


We caught up with the museum's Curator of African Art, Constantine Petridis, for some behind-the-scenes perspective of the making of the exhibition. "Throughout the exhibition, we’ve grouped objects by type…creating mini-installations of art, where the installation helps visitors to look, read at individual works and make connections," he said. Watch the clip above, then download the CMA Senufo app and visit the exhibition to discover more!
