of a Continent
The Royal Academy's Africa Exhibition is the linchpin of the current Africa '95 season. But is it everything we have been led to believe?

From Thursday to
21 Jan 1996
Death is a great leveller. It is also the ultimate taboo. Though it happens to us all, few are prepared to confront it. Perhaps "The Dead" will help us to understand mortality. From Mafia killings to Aids and images from the morgue - here is the last enemy, in all its glory and degredation.
From Fri to 7 Jan. National Museum of Photography, Film & Television, Bradford

To 26 Nov. Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh
