Implementation for a traveling exhibition exploring the art and visual culture of Ethiopia as a geographic crossroads from antiquity to the present, including public programs and a catalog.

This project supports "Ethiopia at the Crossroads," a landmark international loan exhibition that celebrates the artistic traditions of Ethiopia from antiquity to the present. Opening at the Walters Art Museum in Fall 2024, this exhibition will explore the cultural significance and humanistic legacy of Ethiopia, from the earliest prehistoric origins through today. This will be the first major art exhibition in America to examine Ethiopian art in a global context by examining how Ethiopia embodies the idea of "crossroads" geographically, historically, and culturally. Accompanied by interpretive experiences in the galleries, contemporary art installations, a dynamic suite of public programs, and a field-leading scholarly publication, "Ethiopia at the Crossroads" will enrich scholars and the public alike with a greater understanding of the complex exchange of visual culture between Ethiopia and the world.
