“Sankofa” is the Akan principal of looking to the past and taking what’s useful to move forward. Sankofa: For The Record was first on view at the Spady Cultural Heritage Museum in Delray Beach in the summer of 2019. The Exhibition depicted history re-written, re-interpreted, and re-examined through the work of local artists.

At Arts Warehouse, The Record extends – bringing the theme and new artists to a different space. Sankofa: The Record extends asks the viewer to consider the diverse methods Contemporary artists use to share their experiences, ruminations, observations, and perspectives. Working across a variety of traditional and new media, the artists in this exhibition explore themes of home as a space of security, personal and public memory, the individual and environments, and the effects of social manipulation.
