BALTIMORE, MARYLAND  •  The Baltimore Museum of Art  •  Ongoing
 
The second in a three-part series exploring light, color, and pattern in the BMA’s distinguished collection of African art, Meditations on African Art: Color is the first exhibition of its kind to explore the symbolism of the African color trinity of red, black, and white. The exhibition showcases 30 rarely seen masks from the BMA’s collection, grouped by color on the gallery walls along with a display of tri-color masks in the center of the gallery, and a site-specific installation by Tunisian-born Swiss artist Fatma Charfi.
