Okeke-Agulu: We have touched on so many issues, some of which I would have liked us to push a little bit more. But I guess there will another opportunity elsewhere to continue these conversations. One thing is clear, and that is that a lot of work remains with regards to how museums deal with modern and contemporary African art and artists, and how they position themselves institutionally in shaping the future of the field. Which brings me to two concluding questions. First, I am curious to know what kinds of exhibitions or projects you consider a priority for museums with substantive interests in the modern and contemporary African art. And second, what do you consider the biggest challenges facing this art as a subject of museological and curatorial attention at present and in the coming years?
