Hajjaj is a part of Africa Pop Studio at the Tang Museum at Skidmore College. This exhibition explores the rich traditions and variations within African studio portraiture — from progenitors like Malick Sidibé to a new generation including Hassan Hajjaj and Omar Diop — and considers its impact on the broader diaspora.

The show will look at the power of Afro-Pop across disciplines and culminates in an evening of music, dance, spoken word, and West African fashions, on Saturday April 22.
