Private Tour of MET's Kongo: Power & Majesty

Saturday, November 7, 2015 - 11:00am

On Saturday, Nov. 7, the World Policy Institute's Program for African Thought will host a private curator-led tour of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s exhibit Kongo: Power & Majesty, for the World Policy community.

This landmark exhibition, described by The Wall Street Journal as "a display of rare and precious treasures" brings together a stunning collection of masterworks from institutions around the world, including the most comprehensive collection of the iconic Mangaaka, or “male power figures” to date. Taken together, the collection tells the story of the early interactions between Africa and Europe and shows, through Kongolese eyes, the changing dynamics of that interaction as slavery and colonialism took hold. The tour will be led by Alisa LaGamma, Ceil and Michael E. Pulitzer Curator in Charge of the Department of Arts of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas.

November 7, 2015 | 11am - 12.30pm

Metropolitan Musem of Art

1000 5th Ave, New York, NY 10028

Space is limited, so if you would like to attend, please RSVP to rsvp@worldpolicy.org by November 3rd.

About the Program for African Thought

The World Policy Institute’s Program for African Thought (PAT) addresses the absence of African voices on the global stage through a series of activities designed to enhance and expand the place for African thinkers in global policy debates. The program consists of three key projects focused on building local research capacity, amplifying existing African commentary, and promoting thought leadership. Through this effort, the Program looks to direct international attention towards ground-level thinkers and change-makers on the continent, bringing local insight into the heart of global affairs.

About World Policy Institute

A center for global thought leadership, the World Policy Institute is uniquely focused on the crucial but neglected challenges and opportunities of an increasingly interconnected world. We stress innovative, transformative thinking; diversity of ideas; and a global perspective. World Policy Journal, fellows, events, and policy projects provide channels for supporters, thought leaders, decision makers, experts, and citizens to identify, debate, and develop constructive solutions.
