The first permanent exhibition in Britain dedicated to African art and culture, African Worlds celebrates the continent's diversity, history and creativity. It brings together a rich mixture of sculpture and decorative arts explained through the voices of elders, maskers, drummers, diviners, artists, exiles, curators and anthropologists. Objects from across Africa are displayed from Egypt to Zimbabwe, and from African related cultures including Brazil and Trinidad. Highlights include masterpieces of the bronze casters art from Benin which depict the arrival of the first Europeans to Africa.
