African Art Online

African Art Online: Exhibitions of Emerging Artists

The African Studies Center’s online exhibition series presents early-career visual artists based in Africa. Our aim is to offer opportunities to artists who have not presented their work in a US venue.

Call for Artists

We seek artists who may benefit from the opportunity to share their work with US audiences through both the online venue and an online talk/dialogue event to be planned in conjunction with an exhibition. To apply or nominate: send a link to the artist’s website or other online representation of artwork, a CV, and contact information. Artists must have access to high-resolution images of their work. An honorarium is provided. Nominations and self-nominations welcome.

For further information or to nominate an artist, contact Victoria Rovine, Co-Director, African Studies Center at
