Curator’s comments

Aminah participated in a six-week study trip to Africa in 1979. The trip inspired a body of work consisting of hundreds of pieces that she called Afrikan Pilgrimage. the Extended Family. In each of the countries she visited- Kenya, Senegal, Egypt, Nigeria, and Ethiopia- Aminah immersed herself in the lively marketplaces and streets and captured the energy of everyday life in paintings and drawings like this one.
