- The work of Brendan Fernandes pushes viewers to reconsider perceptions about the cultural identities associated with Africa and the African Diaspora. The title of this first career survey refers to a key work, a walk-in shelter containing a multi-channel video and sound environment, animated African masks and Dadaist and Voodoo-inspired sound poems. The juxtaposition of images, natural and man-made materials, and tribal and nonsensical sounds lead the viewer to consider the many ways in which the arts and artifacts of Africa have been presented within popular culture.
