We are currently busy preparing for the latest [Re:]Entanglements project exhibition, which will be taking place at the Museum of Archaeology & Anthropology, Cambridge between April and December 2021.

This will be the latest in a series of exhibitions exploring colonial archives and collections in decolonial times. It brings together historical archives and collections from Northcote Thomas’s anthropological surveys in Nigeria and Sierra Leone with contemporary creative responses to pose difficult questions about the legacies of colonialism in the present.

Other project exhibitions have taken place at Nosona Studios in Benin City, the National Museum in Lagos, the University of Nigeria in Nsukka, and the Royal Anthropological Institute in London. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic a planned exhibition at the National Museum in Freetown has had to be postponed, but we hope to hold this at a later date.
