“Africa is not what you think it is,” says Ruti Direktor, the curator of a new exhibit at the Tel Aviv Museum.

Certainly, anyone whose conception of Africa consists of jungle and lions, or news footage of wars and poverty, is in for a surprise when they see the offerings at “Regarding Africa: Contemporary Art and Afro-Futurism,” a large-scale panorama of thought-provoking ideas about the 800 million people who populate Sub-Saharan Africa.
