The Portland Museum of Modern Art partners with Sahel Sounds to bring you Christopher Kirkley‘s “Azawad Libre! New Media and Imagined Geographies in the Sahel,” from November 18th to December 15th. Kirkley exhibits his travels in this multimedia showcase, exploring a flourishing intersection of folk art, computers, and cell phones through the Sahel, and the political implications of these new forms of expression. Kirkley uses these words to describe the exhibition:
“Examining the rich content of the digital artifacts which circulate through the networks of the Sahel, Azwad Libre! considers not only the roles of new media and democratization of creative tools, but the beauty of uninhibited inspiration.”
