n.paradoxa is the only international feminist art journal which specialises in discussions about contemporary women artists (visual arts only, post-1970) and feminist theory.

This special issue on 'Africa and its Diasporas' looks at the work of contemporary women artists working in Africa or of African descent or engaged with issues of African identity to highlight the complex relationships between artists working on social and political issues in different places and countries related to this large and culturally diverse continent and now, perhaps, living in different parts of the world today or in Africa itself.

Bisi Silva is a member of n.paradoxa's editorial board, a curator and founder and Director of CCA, Lagos.
