Drawing extensively on the Wits Art Museum (WAM) collection, this six part series explores a wide range of ‘contemporary’ African art practices. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn from specialists, engage with people who share one’s interests and expand one’s knowledge of the visual arts of Africa.
Speakers will unpack the term ‘contemporary’ , examine artistic practices and explore various curatorial projects. Participants will gain insights into the way in which art made in Africa is understood, viewed and discussed as ‘contemporary’ and ‘African’ in both local and wider African contexts.
