I saw the "Africa Remix" exhibit last summer and was blown away by the energy and diversity of contemporary African art. The exhibit included paintings, drawings, sculptures, photography, multimedia installations, furniture design, music, literature and fashion. I was particularly drawn to the artist Chéri Cherin. His paintings urgently capture the beauty of his homeland and the strength of people struggling to rise above the corruption and violence surrounding his native Congo.
