AFRICAN TWILIGHT: Vanishing Rituals & Ceremonies is a celebration of Africa’s artistry and boundless creativity, captured by renowned artists Carol Beckwith and Angela Fisher.

The Bowers’ presentation marks the world premiere of this stunning exhibition, with photographs and film covering the last 15 years of their work in over 45 African countries. Their images capture the continent’s vast cultural diversity while documenting profound moments of commonality in the human life cycle, including unique initiation ceremonies, colorful courtship rituals, the splendor of power in Royal Kingdoms, and intimate healing practices for the living and the dead.

African Twilight: Vanishing Rituals and Ceremonies is organized by Photokunst and is presented by the Bowers Museum.
