Afropolitan’s at V&A Museum

On the 24th of June, The V&A Museum in london will be hosting an evening exploring African photography, fashion, style and identity. The evening will look back to image-makers who captured the excitement, optimism and sense of freedom of post-independence African nations from the 1960s, and forward to a new generation of ‘Afropolitans’, global tastemakers whose sensibilities are rooted in their African identities.

It promises to be a fun and celebratory evening of modern, iconic, African aesthetics, reflecting how Africans living across the continent (and beyond) view themselves and their visual heritage.
