Mark’s Remarks: “Shangaa: Art of Tanzania”

In “Mark’s Remarks,” Portland Museum of Art Director Mark Bessire discusses all things PMA—from art in the galleries to his favorite treat in the PMA Café.

In this edition Mark highlights the stunning exhibition of Tanzanian art, Shangaa: Art of Tanzania, on view through August 25. Shangaa is the first major exhibition in the United States to focus on the traditional arts of Tanzania.

“Shangaa” means “to amaze” in Swahili and that’s exactly what this exhibition does.
