Co-organized by Museu de Arte de São Paulo (MASP) and Instituto Tomie Ohtake, Afro-Atlantic Histories marks the 130th anniversary of the abolition of slavery in Brazil. The exhibition features paintings that explore the history of one of the greatest forced population migrations in world history. The Atlantic became an exit route but also an arrival route: a place of exile and of birth for many diasporic populations that have shaped today’s social and cultural contexts in the Americas and the Caribbean. Artists include Robert Duncanson (1821–1872), Archibald Motley (1891–1981), Aaron Douglas (1899–1979), Lois Marilou Jones (1905–1998), and John Biggers (1924–2001).
