“Artificial Africa”

Vernon Reid and the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African Art have teamed up to celebrate Black Music Month with a performance of Reid’s multimedia performance project Artificial Afrika at the National Portrait Gallery.

Artificial Afrika, is a multimedia exploration of the West’s mythologized conceptions of African culture. An up-tempo blend of live guitar and electronic sounds complements a multi-screen video exhibit that incorporates digitally manipulated African images.
