Exhibition— Sankofa: African Routes, Canadian Roots

Sankofa is a Ghanaian Akan word that means to move forward while reaching back to connect to one’s heritage. Sankofa: African Routes, Canadian Roots (on display at MOA until March 27, 2022) looks at some of the divergent—and often fragmented—paths of political mobilization and cultural assertion that African and Black people in the diaspora have taken.

Centered on works by contemporary artists from Lagos, Nigeria, and Vancouver, in conversation with objects in MOA’s permanent collection, this exhibition shares stories, histories and projects of African and Black affirmation. In particular, it draws connections to historical contributions and the growing vitality of Black Canadians in Vancouver.
