The website for the National Museum of African Art, a Smithsonian museum, has chosen an interesting way to present the artwork of two artists from central Africa. Each artist has been asked to make a new piece in response to the other artist's work. The artist Antonio Ole is from Angola and Aime Mpane splits his time between Belgium and the Democratic Republic of Congo. To go right to the exhibit, visitors can go to the bottom of the page and click on "Artists in Dialogue: Antonio Ole and Aime Mpane". The website includes older, as well as more recent, pieces from each artist, and by clicking on the thumbnails visitors will find a larger image, an explanation of each piece, and technical details. At the bottom of the page, visitors should also check out "Dialogues with", which include "Dialogues with the Curators", "Dialogues with Students", "Dialogues with the Public (Blog)", and "Dialogues with Time" which is a time lapsed video of the installation of the exhibition, over six days.
