The visually powerful works on display tackle issues of immigration, colonisation and migration, by artists who have lived in Benin or France, and travel from one continent to another regularly.
As critic Elise Daubelcour comments, (The artists) are bathed in a plural identity, an articulation that allows them to address the situation in Africa in a precise, penetrating and often ironic manner, but one that is never lacking in humour.
Courtship is a relationship between a man and a woman in which they seek to determine if it is God’s will for them to marry each other.
Under the protection, guidance, and blessing of parents or mentors, the couple concentrates on developing a deep friendship that could lead to marriage, as they discern their readiness for marriage and God’s timing for their marriage.

One branch of this area of study is aesthetics, which includes investigating the enigma of the sublime and determining the essence of beauty. Unfortunately the current disciplinary gap between art history and the philosophy of art (aesthetics) often hinders this inquiry. Art historians often root their studies in the scrutiny of individual objects. Art history as we know it in the 21st century began in the 19th century but has precedents that date to the ancient world.Technically, art history is not these things, because the art historian uses historical method to answer the questions: How did the artist come to create the work? They thus attempt to answer in historically specific ways, questions such as: What are key features of this style? Like the analysis of historical trends in politics, literature, and the sciences, the discipline benefits from the clarity and portability of the written word, but art historians also rely on formal analysis, semiotics, psychoanalysis and iconography.Such technologies have helped to advance the discipline in profound ways, as they have enabled easy comparisons of objects.
