African fashion decolonialized by a new generation of artists and designers.  Gathering artists and designers from Uganda, Benin and Senegal, Connecting Afro Futures explores the relational nuances between hair, fashion and African identity. From ornate wig sculptures to a videographic survey of Afro futurism to clothing made from recycled industrial waste, these artworks and pieces serve to redefine contemporary African fashion and hair styling from a decolonial perspective. Part fashion magazine and part exhibition catalog, Connecting Afro Futures conveys the vibrant radicality of some of Africa's most creative designers. Artists include Lamula Anderson, Bull Doff, Meschac Gaba, Jos Hendo, Adama Paris and Gloria Wavamunno.
