"MAXXI is dedicating a major exhibition to the African continent: the project, realised in collaboration with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, will present the works of 34 artists reflecting on the on-going social and cultural transformations.

Through five chapters, the exhibition presents the complex structure of a metropolis in which the urban space is seen as a location for the coming together of diverse experiences in which tradition and contemporaneity dialogue."
