Cyrus Kabiru,

Showcasing the work of more than 120 artists and designers, "Making Africa: A Continent of Contemporary Design" illustrates how design accompanies and fuels economic and political changes on the continent. Africa is presented as a hub of experimentation generating fresh approaches and solutions of worldwide relevance and as a driving force for a new discussion of the potential of design in the 21st century.

The exhibition focuses on a new generation of entrepreneurs, thinkers and designers from and within Africa, who, as "digital natives," address a global audience and provide the world with an unexpected vantage point on their continent. Okwui Enwezor, advising curator for "Making Africa," states that "the future belongs to Africa, because it seems to have happened everywhere else already."
