The Met’s Galleries :

The Met’s galleries devoted to the art of sub-Saharan Africa, the ancient Americas, and Oceania were inaugurated in 1982. At the time, their opening marked a radical expansion of the cultural achievements recognized by the Museum. Since then, we have witnessed a surge in transformative and expanded art historical studies on the vast areas of world art these galleries embrace. Those advances of the last thirty-eight years have in turn sparked a reenvisioning of this global crossroads within the Museum.

In Akan culture, the term Sankofa refers to a quest for knowledge, which is visualized as a bird with feet planted forward and head turned backward. Likewise, this project involves a critical examination of the past as a guide for renewal. Developed over the last four years with WHY Architects, the initiative will begin to manifest in January 2021 with the de-installation of the existing Oceanic art galleries.
