Sartorial Moments and the Nearness of Yesterday, Museum of the African Diaspora, San Francisco, USA from 06/20/13 to 09/29/13

The works of J.D. 'Okhai Ojeikere will be presented at the Museum of the African Diaspora.

Ojerikere’s photographs, which date from 1955 to 2008, document traditional dress and hairstyles along with the Western-style adaptations that enabled the youth of Lagos to feel themselves part of the modern world.

Sartorial Moments is the first of several exhibitions at MoAD that will examine the effects of African and Caribbean independence movements on Africans both in Africa and in the global diaspora.
