Beats of Beads

Beads and ornamental beadworks have played an important role in the lives of African people. They reflect group identity, age, gender, social status, fashion trends, and are a vehicle through which people store, exchange and transmit wealth.

Curated by Idit Toledano in collaboration with Eti Dayan, Beats of Beads presents different styles of beadworks from several groups of pastorals and agro-pastoral ethnic groups of East Africa, as well as the works of contemporary artist Cyrus Kabiru.
