Gallery Talk: In Dialogue: African Arts

Wednesday, November 15, 2017

Sponsored by:
Cantor Arts Center

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.
