Art History professor Dana Rush and her seminar students in "African Art in the Museum: Problems of Presentation and Representation," co-curated a reinstallation of the African Gallery in a manner consistent with Africa's antiquity and its varied global interactions.

Themes in this reinstallation explored Africa's many religious systems and associated arts including early Christian and Islamic heritages, the transatlantic migration of African arts and culture, and modern and contemporary African art.
