The Teen Exchange facilitates the meeting and sharing of experiences between a group of teenagers across Detroit and Cape Town. The idea of this exchange first came about in October 2019, when Crossing Night opened in Detroit. This exhibition, a partnership between A4 and MOCAD, shared the work of Southern African artists.

Crossing Night is an exhibition series organised by A4 with partner institutions elsewhere in the world. The project focuses on artistic practices from the Southern African region. This, the second iteration, will highlight states of flux and liminality in urban landscapes in Southern Africa.
