This catalogue accompanies Distant Relatives / Relative Distance, a curated exhibition of work by six contemporary artists from elsewhere in Africa, all currently living overseas. The exhibition features installations created for the gallery space by visiting artists Barthélémy Toguo (Cameroon/ France) and Senam Okudzeto (Ghana/UK), as well as paintings by Odili Donald Odita (Nigeria/USA) and Owusu-Ankomah (Ghana/Germany), prints by Julie Mehretu (Ethiopia/USA) and a video projection by Wangechi Mutu (Kenya/USA). In addition to a preface by Joost Bosland and Michael Stevenson, the catalogue features the seminal essay 'Bye-bye, Babar - or, What is an Afropolitan?' by Taiye Tuakli-Wosornu.
