Gallery Talk: In Dialogue: African Arts

November 15 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm

Location: Thomas K. Seligman Gallery - Map Link

Registration is not required. This program is free and open to the public.

Amanda M. Maples, Curatorial Fellow for African and Indigenous American Art, discusses Uwa by El Anatsui.

In Dialogue represents the vibrant and dynamic arts of the continent and its diasporas. Drawing primarily from the Cantor’s own collection, it considers the arts of Africa to be rooted in a deep and rich history that is locally, as much as globally, connected. The exhibition will prompt the viewer, both new to and familiar with African arts, to wonder — who, where, when, why and even what is African Art.
