Internationally acclaimed dramatist, social critic, and Nobel laureate Wole Soyinka is an avid collector of African artworks including those from his home country of Nigeria. The Cooper Gallery at the Hutchins Center in Harvard Square will feature two dozen of these hand-selected pieces in “WOLE SOYINKA: Antiquities Across Times and Place.”

Curated by New York University professor Awam Amkpa, the exhibition places ancient masks, head-dresses, dolls, busts, vessels, weapons and more — made from wood, brass and other materials — in conversation with works by contemporary Nigerian and Nigerian-American artists Peju Alatise, Moyo Okediji, Olu Amoda, Chris Abani, and Peter Badejo.
