Africa in the Arts of Philadelphia brings together the work of visual artists Barbara Bullock (born 1938), Charles Searles (1937–2004), and Twins Seven-Seven (1944–2011), exploring their collaborative cross-fertilization of ideas and assertions of African and African American cultural identity. These artists participated in the activities of the Ile-Ife Black Humanitarian Center in North Philadelphia. The exhibition examines the work of these artists and their formative experiences at Ile-Ife, which expanded their understanding of the richness of African traditions.
