Twenty-plus countries are represented by more than forty designers and artists, ranging from pioneers like Kofi Ansah (Ghana) and Shade Thomas-Fahm (Nigeria) to the next generation of innovative thinkers like Thebe Magugu (South Africa) and Gouled Ahmed (Djibouti). Many of the pieces on display are making their debut appearance in the States. Lastly, one of the most endearing aspects of this exhibition is the encouragement of cultural exchange and appreciation.
